I saw the most amazing thing this morning. At 12:45 today, I was driving north on Towerhill Road, just past the intersection with Milroy Drive, and I caught something out of the corner of my eye. Over the house on the opposite side of the road, at first glance I thought I saw a plane, but then I saw it was not one but two mature Bald Eagles circling at about 100 ft over the houses and the sports fields behind them. I got out of my car and watched them for about 5 minutes, kicking myself for not having my camera with me!
