Eagle season

They won’t be laying eggs until early next year, but our local bald eagles are already checking out their chosen areas and starting to build (or rebuild) their nests. A couple of days ago I was very lucky to spot one of the Lake Natoma eagles sitting in the nest tree — probably wondering how long before the noisy humans are finished with trail repairs below.

Then yesterday afternoon, I got a bonus sighting out at Folsom Lake. A different pair of bald eagles have previously been nesting in the area where I was hiking, but I didn’t expect to see them flying right over my head! I’m especially grateful for this sighting because my hike was otherwise completely uneventful and I wasn’t feeling too inspired — although I can’t complain much, I still got 5.5 miles’ worth of exercise out of it.
