We also spent some time with a couple that were monitoring a bald eagle nest in our campground. They had a section of the park closed off because there were chicks in the nest a few days ago, but they are now thinking the worst, as one adult, and the chicks have not been spotted since a big wind event a few days ago. We got to look through a telescope at the nest, and we also watched through the scope as the lone adult eagle ate a duck on the other side of the lake. We talked to the monitors and learned a lot about eagles, as well as the local area, including the fire that came through. The day ended at a local restaurant, sitting near a local citizen with his cowboy hat, huge belt buckle, and pistol holstered at his side. We know that we are not in Houston PA anymore.
