Friday and Saturday, January 1 & 2, 2010-So. Toledo Bend State Park LA

We went for a ride with Ricky and Dee to see the bald eagle nest and this is what we found. The large nest is very high up in a tree and well off the road.
Here is a little better shot of the bird in the nest. Although we didn't get to see this one out of the nest, Ricky and Dee said they had seen it sitting on one of the tree branches before. I guess we'll have to come back to see it again.

Here is a little better shot of the bird. This is the only nest that we saw but I suppose there must be others somewhere in the area. Dee and I walked out into the field to get a little closer but didn't get too close so we wouldn't get in trouble with the park rangers.
Since we had all turned in pretty early on the rainy New Year eve, we got up pretty early and relit the fire in our gathering area between Bill and Ricky's trailers. We had another great breakfast and then hung out by the fire. Most of us took naps in the afternoon and Judy, who was still sick, stayed inside to get better.
I think this was one of the best new year parties that we have ever had. Everyone seemed to have a great time among friends, and we look forward to many more in the future.
So long.
