My Garden – Mon Jardin – Mi Jardin – Mein Garten – Daily Adventures & Thoughts

No matter the language, my garden is my paradise. To watch the lovely birds that nest in the trees and bushes. The bees, butterflies are such a joy to see.

The eagles were hunting for lunch ….. on an overcast Sunday


Friday, May 31, 2013

A few weeks ago, when we were working away on our rental ….I heard the sounds of the local eagles who were out hunting for lunch.

Their cries were quite loud which meant that they were very close by.

Dropping my gardening tools, I ran into the street, joined by my neighbour.  We could see the eagles swooping low, flying in tandem .. seeking their prey.

So we simply ran down the street towards the action, surprised that others in the neighbourhood simply ignored the activity.


Eagle 1

The look says it all ….

Eagle 2





Yep …. quarry is not visible any more ..




One more look ..

Undaunted, their luncheon fare gone for now .. off they flew to search for more ..






So very graceful






Bye for now ….









Such magnificent creatures these eagles are … we returned to our respective homes … still feeling a little of the wild energy emanating from this very brief closeness to the raw nature.  Existing in the same area as humans, but, oh, so very much apart.

So very humbling.

I love dogs and currently do not have any, so I am a dog-mommy when I can be. Gardening is my passion. I've always loved birds and I'm learning a bit at a time from all the Birders that I meet. Swan Lake is my second home! .

  1. Oh gosh, I wish I had been there to see these magnificent eagles!


  2. It was such a lovely surprise. This pair have been nesting in the same tree for years and matured a few years ago .. haven’t seen any young ones yet .. they are always around, but this was the closest I’ve ever been to them .. swooping down to the sidewalk close!
