After reading the posted signs about watching your pets and not being too noisy due to a bald eagle nesting along the Boise River in Eagle, we've been looking all spring and summer. We thought we spotted one once, but it came and disappeared so quickly we couldn't be sure. Osprey also nest in the area so if you don't look closely, one big bird can look like another. But finally, two weeks ago while I was walking the river with a friend early on a Friday morning, we spotted the bald eagle in the tree. I only wish the kiddos were with me (and my good camera).
