The soccer fields where the "parks and recreation" soccer games are held, are on the edge of town, by a small river. It was a cold morning on our way to the soccer game on Saturday at 9am when we passed the pond by the river and I saw something and yelled "Stop! Kids look at the birds!". Not only was the pond filled with large Pelicans but there was a Great Blue Heron on the shore and then came flying in a beautiful American Bald Eagle who spooked the Great Blue Heron and landed on the ground. It then flew up again circled around and landed in the tree. By the time I got the camera out I had missed the pic of it with it's wings spread in the air but did get a blurry shot of it in the tree. It must have been a good morning for fishing. So after marveling at the birds we made it to the game which turned out to be cold, but as usual Tensae did great.
