Thank You, Rachel Carson

I almost couldn't believe my eyes yesterday morning. I was driving home over the smaller bridge to Smallish City, through what is probably the most industrial spot in the Smallish State-- airport on one side, petroleum tank farm on the other, marine scrap-metal terminal ahead, interstate over to the side-- and looked up to see a bald eagle soaring over the river, just above. Not a quarter mile from the Turbopalace, as the eagle flies. Wish I'd had my camera with me. I wonder if anyone else saw it?

Vigorous North recently posted about a barred owl spotted right downtown. If he didn't have photos, I'd think he was hallucinating, too.
