I Can't Believe It...

Thursday I was headed to BS's house and thought I would go up Rt. 1 for a change of scenery. I usually take 95 because it is much faster. So I was headed up Rt. 1 and I crossed the Rappahannock River minding my own business and I saw a bird fly down into the road going after some roadkill. My first thought was that it was a buzzard. But as I took a better look, I almost wrecked my car because I was actually watching this kind of bird come down into the roadway to pick up dinner. And then it flew away.

Now I know a few of you are probably thinking that Bald Eagles don't eat roadkill; they eat fish, but I was only 2 cars back from where this bird landed in the road and when it started to fly away it came right beside my car. I got a good look, and I still cannot believe my eyes.

I wish I would have had my camera to try to take a picture but instead I reached for my cell phone to use it and that is when I was startled back to reality as the car in the center lane was blowing its horn at me. The first person I called was SJ. She can tell you how excited I was.

What an amazing thing to see. What a pity you couldn't get a photo.

I would have loved to have seen The Bird as well. Too bad that you didn't get a photo though.....
