Kentucky Color: Turtle Breakfast for Bald Eagles of Crocus Creek
Click on headline for story plus photo(s)
By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired State Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry
Herbert Turner (Adair County's very own Grizzly Adams) and I have been seeing these mature Bald Eagles during late winter and early spring down on Crocus Creek. We think they may be the immature Eagles we've been seeing the last couple of years.
I am assuming that they are a mating pair. Females are usually much bigger and one of the birds is larger. Also, Bald Eagles = as best the experts know - mate for life and live in the wild 20+ years.
I've had some photos of this pair for a couple of weeks but since they were taken from a great distance and weren't very plain, I was afraid someone might mistake them for Yogi and Boo Boo.
I've learned recently that there is high tech equipment available to some on the City Council and to some of the staff at Lindsey Wilson that will "turn a silk purse into a sow's ear". So to all those following in the pioneering footsteps of Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, Hernando de Soto, and other great explorers, just remember that some may choose to "doubt" when the evidence is not overwhelmingly conclusive.
Oh well, Orville and Wilbur Wright were faced with similar detractors but thank God, they persevered in spite of those who would needlessly keep civilization in the perpetual realm of the Status Quo.
