|Bald eagle on the ground in my flock of sheep.|
It looks like the eagle is picking up the wool that my sheep are shedding, a beakful at a time. My sheep shed every year at this time, and there are patches of wool all over the place. I could see a nest being pretty warm and comfortable when lined with wool.
Now the eagle might have thought that there was a dead animal under the hair, but I definitely saw it picking up stuff from the ground. It flew off an perched on a cell phone tower a half-mile away. I'll have to look at it tomorrow to see if its building a nest there.
