|A squirrel paid the eagles a visit|
|As he approached, the eagle got nervous|
|Once the eagle stirred, the squirrel fled|
|The squirrel quickly left without the eagle really knowing what it was|
|Stunned and not too sure, the squirrel rested below the nest for a little while|
|When he turned around, I couldn't believe it|
|He approached the nest from the other side (squirrel in lower right of the image)|
|The eagle greeted the too friendly squirrel much the same as before|
|Fortunately, the eagle just went right back to keeping the eggs warm... while keeping looking out for that pesky squirrel|
Bald eagles mainly eat fish, but they will take just about anything that is easy to catch. Squirrels are not so easy to catch, and never a good thing so near the eggs. The squirrel disappeared after the second assault on the nest. I didn't see where he went, but he never was high enough to be eaten by the eagle.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
