April-May 2005 Report:

(Photograph courtesy Missouri Dept. of Conservation) Baby Bald eaglets demand their food. They won't get their distinctive white head and tail feathers until they are between four and six years old. Fully mature, a Bald Eagle will have a six-foot wingspan and a nest that can weigh up to a ton.

Spring has Sprung.
Babies are Coming.
Migration is in Full-Tilt Boogie --

Time to put hummingbird feeders out and a bat box for mosquitoes. Keep your cats indoors.
