Will You Be Soaring With The Eagles in 2010?

Last weekend we were driving to my mother's house in SE Missouri for Christmas when all of a sudden we saw something just ahead of us. I said "look at that big bird" and then we all realized it was a bald eagle! It flew in front of us and then landed in a tree.

We pulled the car over just as it perched in the tree. Fortunately it stayed there long enough for us to grab the camera and get a picture before it flew away. It was breathtaking. These birds are so big and beautiful!

Are you setting your goals high for 2010? We are setting ours high to soar with the eagles!

I hope I will be up with those beautiful birds. I still have my  business plan to work on, but I'm getting there. Great pic!

They are beautiful birds.  Fortunately they are pretty abundant here  in Washington State. Have a great new year!

Georgous birds, great photo, we have a nesting pair of balds about a mile away, we also have a Golden Eagles nest a 100 feet from our house down our rim on the canyon wall. They fly eye level. Mount up on the wings of eagles.
