The migratory bald eagles are back in Clove Valley and early this year. Last week before the cold returned there was still some open water on the pond near the house. Two bald eagles were in a tree watching the water. I didnt see them try to nail any fish but they also might have been watching for field mice. I couldnt get a picture as they were too far off but here is a famous cartoon by Peter Arno about an enthusiastic bird watcher.
