~ Eaglets ~ Barn Swallows ~ Prime Rib Day ~

Good 41ยบ rain predicted for today morning! Rain? Whaaaaa? Sigh.....

The eagles are growing....

Mom had just left the nest and returned quickly. Or it was the dad, couldn't tell.

Went to Medford yesterday and it was a 'less weather' day than before. On the way home there were some actual spots of blue sky!

Two of the birdhouses on the porch have residents. The bluebirds are in the red & white house (still working on building a nest and making the eggs!) and the one at the other end is filled with barn swallows and lots of noisy babies!

After I returned from Medford, Maggie and I went up to Patty and Cliffs for cocktails. Maggie is actually a tea toddler! We visited and did some more tweaking on her computer. She's going to order a new one soon.
