As the wind drove the snow past our dining room window, I happened to look outside over the back field. We tend to put “leftovers” from cleaning animals out back on a rock shelf and allow the birds like turkey vultures and crows to perform a sky burial–they eat the bits left over.
Today, hounded by two crows, a Bald Eagle made an appearance! As I write, he’s still perched in a tree at the edge of the wood. He’s stayed there long enough that the crows have given up and gone to get out of the weather deeper in the forest. It’s a rare sight, and a welcome one!
