West Seattle weekend scene: “The boys are back”

That’s how Gary Jones captioned this photo he shared of two juvenile bald eagles spotted in the Alki sunshine this morning. (Got a photo to share? Here’s how to send it!)

    Gary, where along Alki did you see these juveniles?
    I thought I saw one of them, at least, in the big tree across from Cactus.

    “The Boys” Love the name for these two Alki Cruisers. You don’t need a car to hang, just a high tree.

    One of them was indeed hanging out in the big tree across from Cactus down at Alki this morning about 11:30am. I enjoyed watching him for a good 15 minutes… took pics w/ my iPhone too, but too high up to see any real detail of such a magnificent bird. Too bad I didn’t have my BIG camera with me.

    Fella’s look in fine fiddle and I’ll keep an eye out for them.

    But, oh boy, that caption is such a song worm!

    I can see the huge tree across from Cactus Restaurant from my front window, and there’s an eagle in it right now.
    Can’t tell if it’s a juvenile or adult because of the lighting and he/she’s kind of behind a branch.

    d: ‘song worm’ ?????????

    Well, it is part of a line of lyrics from a song with a particular melody that some how gets lodged in the brain. The phrase and melody plays over and over and on and on. Irritating.

    But it isn’t a judgement of the caption or pics at all; just a random trigger in my brain, for some reason. Maybe I am just weird. ;)

    d: I wasn’t saying that you were being judgmental, I just had never heard the term, ‘song worm’, before and wanted to know what it meant.
    And, an interesting term it is.
    Your explanation makes sense. Guess maybe I’m also weird.

    Beautiful photo on a beautiful day… isn’t it great?
    I’ve heard the term as “ear worm” when getting a song stuck in your head but “song worm” works too. :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
