    Bald eagles can by a bird that can by a rare site to see. I like this slice of life. It shows what some people don’t see when they don’t get a time to go out in nature.

    The simple things!!!!!!! My husband and I too enjoy watching birds of all kinds and their habits, and I enjoyed you putting this small moment in a mini-story with dialogue. Not only are you a wonderful writer, but a wonderful mom to share the simple things with your children. Funny how nature still astounds vs. technology. Don’t stop writing or sharing with your children. I am a retired language arts teacher, so I am appreciating the simpler things even more–you inspired me to write today!

    It’s amazing to see such a gorgeous bird out of the blue. Hopefully I’ll be able to see some really soon. You can’t ever find any. Very rare.

    That’s really cool to see those. My brother and I have seen a couple in the woods around my house. It’s really cool to see them.

    That is so cool. I always see them in the summer when I go out on the Grand River. They are awesome animals. I love watching them fly around in the sky.

    Its kinda of hard to believe that a bird can have a wingspan bigger than a size of a human?!

    I wrote about the little things today as well. I loved the way your pulled the reader in at the beginning by setting the stage for your slice.

    Something about your voice in this slice really captures the emotion of a moment like this. The voice and imagery took me right back to growing up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Thank you!

    I love your opening line – and I can visualize your drive and views of eagles along the river – I get the same sorts of peeks at those majestic birds on my drive to work. Feel blessed to be so close to them in the NW.

    I love your opening line – I love being in the NW and getting to see those majestic birds on my drive to work each day!
