Rainy Morning Eagle Shift Changes

I got out a while yesterday morning the rain diminishing to a drizzle. I was lucky and caught the shift change at a couple eagles nests. At one nest the eagles stayed off the eggs for almost an hour.

My wife could sense my discomfort and said go out.  My grumpiness was getting to her I think. Will have to work on changing my attitude when I get that way. I recall my grandmother telling me when I got that way, get outside or she would tan my hide…
