Day 10:54 am
Some of my Eagles Painted in Reverse on Glass are larger than others. but they are all of the Bald Eagle species as yet. The reason for this I am sure, is because they are the only species of eagle in this part of New York that has been reintroduced to the area.
The first time I saw one, one of my daughters did not believe me. So I painted it. I am sure she still did not believe me, but I felt better. About two years later it became common knowledge they were thriving locally.
Last year an eagle couple built a nest just a few miles from home, but there were too many fans for those modest raptors, so they moved out. You see, apparently someone was bothering them with a drone, and I heard the male eagle had been injured. I do hope the eagle was able to eat the drone first. I do not understand why people feel the need to bother north American wildlife.
When our oldest grandson graduated and was about to go in the USMC, he told my daughter and son-in-law that what he wanted was one of my Eagles Painted in Reverse on Glass, in red, white and blue. So that was his gift from Grandma. It would be great if all teens were so easy to please with avian art.
