  1. Sunday May 10 2009 (mother’s day) we came a cross a large bald eagle on Mckellips road. Kinda near the 101 . I have about 20 pictures. So cool! it has a nest in a tree next to mcKellips Rd. If you would like more information please let me know, People were slowing down after they saw me taking pictures, I would hate to have people disrupt the bird. I left quickly after people stated watching me I didnt want them to scare the bird away.
