01:04 am - hmm
Well, I tried to post about this earlier (1:30 p.m. or so, toda-- uh, yesterday) from my phone but no luck. I saw something really cool on my way to the bus this afternoon: a bald eagle. It was chasing and being chased; chasing sparrows and pigeons, being harassed by crows and patently ignoring them. It was amazing. 35th and Henderson, in West Seattle.

I started by noticing this cloud of birds swirling around, then I saw that one of them was MUCH larger than the rest. Then it swung around into the light so I could see the white head and tail markings. Meanwhile the crows were yelling and dive-bombing, and the eagle appeared long-suffering. Then it disappeared. Go figure.

I had heard that there was a pair of eagles in the neighborhood, and thought I'd seen one several times in the past year. This was the first time I could make an absolutely positive ID, though.

Wild life; cool.

I've seen a bald eagle over Westcrest Park before, near 9th and Henderson. This was probably a couple of years ago, but there's a good chance it was the same one (or the other of the pair). Cool, huh?

The only thing cooler would have been to see it catch the pigeon.

Well, you might not think so, but I do.
