I have been watching a pair of Bald Eagles nesting near lake Codorus for several weeks now on HDontap.com and what I have seen is nothing short of amazing! The way these majestic birds protect their eggs does remind me how our service men and women protect us! I have witnessed the eagle on the nest with wings outstretched completely covered in snow to keep the nest cavity dry. I have also watched how they walk ( talons closed) around the eggs to keep from accidentally breaking them. The first eaglet has hatched today and the Mate has brought several fish already.Now I know why the Bald Eagle was chosen as our national symbol and it does make me proud to be an American!! So "Thank You"to all of the service men and women who make it possible to enjoy " Freedom"
