Heard About the Partridge in the Pear Tree? How About Bald Eagles in the Oak?

Bob and I have a Christmas tradition that each year on the weekend before Christmas, we go to Eureka Springs. We have lunch at Sparkys, buy an ornament for the tree and window shop.
So today was our day and we drove the route that takes us a little east, then thru Berryville, AR to Eureka Springs.
Just north of Berryville, Bob spots an eagle flying. And then we saw this – an oak grove with eagles as thick as sparrows! We pulled over onto the shoulder and counted at least 2 dozen bald eagles.
And I apologize for these photos – and I know our friends that have such gorgeous wildlife blogs will have heart failure – but I did the best I could!
We were so thrilled to see these magnificent birds – and so many!

As you look at these pictures, almost any bright spot is an eagles head! In the second photo, under the cedar tree to the right, you can spot an eagle on the ground.

An exciting and thrilling sight in the course of our seasons!
