ladydebubba the robin is cool but I really like the pink flamingo in the back ground!!! Native to TN????:rotfl::rotfl::D

Franny, the pink flamingo is native to TN now! :lol: We bought it at Shady Oaks Antiques when we were down there in August. We also have a native to TN hippo also. :lol:

I do wish I could have gotten a picture a few weeks ago of the owl that was in the tree above me by our side porch. I did not even know he was in that tree until I saw him fly out across our backyard. And of course I didn't have my camera outside with me. :bang:

OK, I know this isn't as much fun as the arguing over the presidential race, but this is the Politics, Environment, and Social Issues section.

I finally got a photo of the Bald Eagle. :D

It was near the Watersound West boardwalk at Little Deer Lake yesterday. What a great place, I'm not looking forward to it getting built out/locked up/full of people/run off all the critters.

Wish I had a tighter zoom, but we were just carrying a little pocket camera. There were two other birds chasing it, but it pretty much ignored them.

It's so thrilling to see Bald Eagles isn't it? We saw one just sitting on a lake iced over (N.Y) for an extended period and were just in awe of how majestic, and huge they are. These birds are very adaptable. There are many of them, along with hawks, living in New York City believe it or not surviving on rats and pigeons.

It is thrilling! I've only seen one in the wild-down in the Hill Country around Austin. I have pics somewhere. I love birds of prey. I've almost wrecked several times going to and from work watching hawks diving for prey.
