Tea with Eagles

I had a lunch date with a friend from church the other day.  She took me to Molly's Tea Room in Medina.  It was the perfect destination for a ladies' lunch date; their food good, the Victorian decor beyond charming.  On our way there, Anna nearly gave me a coronary with a loud exclamation of, "Ooooh, April!!!"

She pointed to a tree a hundred yards in front of us.  High in the branches were two very large birds, eagles in fact.  I was absolutely flummoxed.  I had no idea our great state of Ohio was home to a living national symbol. How cool is that?!

Zoomed in to the max optical zoom.  One of them even made a call while we sat and watched them.

The view from where we were in the van

It's hard to get a sense of the size of the eyrie from this shot, but it was large for a bird's nest!

A parting shot.
