Back Splash and Bald Eagles

Lavon, Texas
Weather Conditions; Cloudy, 36 degrees

We’ve been spending a lot of time inside lately. This cold wet weather doesn’t leave us with much of a choice.

To help pass the time we’ve been cleaning out drawers and doing some pre-spring cleaning.

We decided to tile our kitchen back splash.

I think it turned out pretty nice. It’s not really glass tiles. Nope, it’s a plastic peel and stick product.

We did have some real excitement this past week.

We found a couple of bald eagles. That’s right; we have bald eagles in north Texas.

We first saw the eagles while drive along the highway. We spotted these two birds sitting on a tree limb.

We couldn’t believe our eyes. I turn the truck around and drove back by the tree. There they sat. I drove back to the fiver which was just a couple miles away and grabbed my camera.

Dawn drove back to the area and I hung out the window with my camera. We were moving about 45 mph when I took these pictures.

There is no place to pull over. We were on a 2 lane highway that is under construction.   
We drove back and forth along this highway until the eagles left.

We called a friend and told her about our sighting. She wanted to see them too.

She grabbed her camera and met us.

We loaded up in the truck and off we went in pursuit of the pair of bald eagles.

We drove around a little bite when we spotted them.

I’ve lived in this area of Texas my entire life and have never seen eagles here.

I few days later Dawn and I spotted them again. I wasn’t able to get too close before they flew off.
