A bird, a baby and an update.......

A male bald eagle on the meadow eating a dead coyote. There was a female hanging around also but I couldn't get a pic of her. There was also a golden eagle on the coyote, but I didn't have my camera!!!

Got Milk? This little calf has a moooo stache and white eyeliner! LOL!

An update on the bottle babies. They both have new mama's. Unfortunately, the mamas lost their calves :( . One of the mama's had a calf born with a cleft palate. Caused from eating "lupine" early in pregnancy. A cleft palate calf has no roof in his mouth, so needless to say he can not nurse. There is nothing you can do for them. So sad. But just part of life and death here.
