Wow!!!
What an opportunity & great adventure & what good fotos you took!!!  :eceek
Those eagles are so big & clear!
Look how the yellow corners of their mouths/beaks come right up under their eyes!
i think this yellow area is called a commissure?
So different than Mum & Dad.
& it*s so different to see them in pine trees rather than the Douglas Fir trees we see them in here.
& look at the size those pine cones must be, compared to the eagles!
You got some great fotos of the day.
Thanks so much for sharing them with us!
wooohoooo!

That's wonderful news, Cawatcher!  What a great opportunity for you to go with them on that unique trip!  Your photos are very nice and I want to look at them in even more detail.  I just made you a "friend" on flickr.

Please update us as you get more information.   :heart

Everytime I see the branches that make up the "Eye," I start singing, The Eye of the Tiger!  I am getting a little tired of seeing Stallone in my head running up the stairs in Philly.  Oh I digress.....

THE DUCK IS DEAD


A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she
laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and
listened to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm
sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

"Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead," replied the vet.

"How can you be so sure?" she protested... "I mean you haven't
done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or
something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He
returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the
duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs,
put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck
from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and
shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the
room.

A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the
table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head
to foot.

The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and
strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said,
this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced
a bill, which he handed to the woman.

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$250?" she cried,
"$250 just to tell me my duck is dead?"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it,
the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat
Scan, it's now $250."

Cawatcher, your photos from your 'eagle outing' are so beautiful and clear. Loved them all; thanks for sharing them with us.  Great news that there will be a plug  for the of Eagles of Hornby Island.

Blue, your story had me chuckling for several minutes. Thanks.

My son in laws parents' dog had puppies Thursday night, She's a chow something cross, the dad is a golden retriever that escaped one day from his breeder. Sheba was abandoned about 6 years ago from their neighbors who up & left for Australia never to be seen again. We figure she's about 8 so they were very surprised to see her attached to this dog one day not ever experiencing her being in heat before :eceek 

Sheba had 5 healthy puppies 4 female, 1 male, a still born & had to go to the vet to have a cesarean to remove another. Mom & puppies are doing great, I think i want one :nod2  probably shouldn't, we'll see. :ecinnocent

Turtle Gang

A snail was moving along the beach when he happened to look back behind him and saw three turtles wearing leather jackets. After moving along for about four weeks, the snail looked back again and saw that the three turtles were still there and closing in on him. So, the snail picked up his pace.

After about six more weeks, the snail looked back again, and saw that the turtles were still chasing him. And they were getting closer and closer! So, he kept on going as fast as he could.

After another few weeks, the turtles finally caught up with the snail and mugged him, took all of his clothes and the keys to his car. After another couple of weeks, the snail got to a pay phone and called the police. "Iíve been mugged by three turtles wearing leather jackets! You need to get down here and take a report or do something!" he said.

"Can you give us a description of the turtles?" asked the police officer. "No, I canít. It all happened too fast!" cried the snail.
