Escape to Catfish Corner

The Geezers made their way down to the creek when the weather warmed up. Their spring juices are starting to flow and they are up all night chattering and bickering--presumably about who gets to sit next to the only female! With four males in contention it does indeed become contentious. Helga and I walked down the bank to visit them. We went further down the trail to the big bend where there is an eagle nest on the left side. We can't see it from the house but we do see the eagles soaring in to visit it most evenings. The "aerie" is a huge pile of impressive sized branches which forms the cozy resting spot for two or three eggs that will be laid in the months ahead.
