WOW! Trip down memory lane!I read about your eagle story and I have a favorite eagle memory. It seems like every time we drive on vacation, during my shift, a bird commits suicide with our van! It never fails, but only with the van!We were coming home from Ontario Aug 2008 and I was driving my shift through Wisconsin. Up ahead I noticed a sizable pile of road kill(Coyote I think) in the right lane. Naturally, I switched into the passing lane to avoid it. As I am cruising at 70MPH, an eagle descends from a tree along the right side of the highway and tries to fly off with the road kill. I am barreling along when I see the eagle realize he won't clear me and drops the road kill right in the middle of my passing lane and plops down next to the median on the left shoulder. Ka-Thump! Yes, I STILL managed to run over that road kill coyote in spite of my best efforts. Secretly, I think that eagle was smiling!Connie
Flashback to childhood...Wow!
