My dogs chased a bald eagle at the dogpark yesterday.
It wasnt' in much danger. It was swooping back and forth across the river, and they running down the beach yapping at it crazily. Still, it thought it best to take a more focused path out of there.
It was pretty darn cool, actually, to see it pretty close like that.
Especially 'cause as a kid I thought I'd never see a bald eagle.
Now I see them fairly often, at least a number of time per year, often a few times a month in the summer.
Which gives me hope that if people actually care about something it can change.
But the pessimist in me reminds me how hard it can be to get people to care about things.
