In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

The Blackbird and the Eagle
Red-winged Blackbird and a none-too-pleased Golden Eagle
While driving through the country yesterday, I saw a Golden Eagle perched on a fence post. I stopped my car, and tried to angle into just the right position to get a picture. Then a Red-winged Blackbird flew in and chased the eagle off its perch and across the road, where the eagle landed on another fence post. The blackbird pursued the eagle and alighted on a nearby post where the bold little bird continued to harass the much larger Golden Eagle. After enduring the blackbird's scolding for a few minutes, the eagle took off and flew away. It must be tough being a hawk or an eagle... none of the other birds seem to want you around their neighborhood!
