Like I was afraid of, it is getting difficult to spot new birds. But, I did see something just as exciting at a wetlands area – 3 groups of baby geese. Most of the thousands of geese that I had seen earlier in the year were gone. This time I saw only a small group plus these 3 families.

The kids & I spotted a bald eagle in a tree on the other side of the pond, so we walked over to get a closer peek. It just sat in the tree minding its own business. So, we moved on to finish our walk. When we arrived back at the parking lot, about to leave, my oldest hollered, “Bald eagle!” He was right, the bald eagle was flying right toward us. It was awesome! It flew a huge circle around the pond, then went back to its tree.
I didn’t see any new birds this week, but I surely enjoyed the ones I did see.
