    The Eagle BY ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON

    He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
    Close to the sun in lonely lands,
    Ring’d with the azure world, he stands.

    The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
    He watches from his mountain walls,
    And like a thunderbolt he falls.

    I love all the eagle pics. Growing up in LA doesn’t afford any opportunity to see such a beautiful creature. Love them.

      Never saw them firsthand before moving here (previous cities included LA), and I will never get blasé about it! We are so thankful for everyone who shares photos … TR

    Great photos! Many thanks to those who submitted them and also to TR at the WSB for reminding us just how awesome our local wildlife is.

    It looks like the nest across from Salty’s is gone! Have you heard anything? I used to see Salty everyday, but now there are no eagles on this side, the Admiral bluff.

      We’ve been asked several times about this in the past month or two. We checked with a couple of area wildlife watchers and it seems no one formally tracks these things so nobody’s sure what happened, but they do change locations sometimes, one person told us. – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
