I will never fail to feel a strong upwelling of pride and wonder at all the eagles that now reside in South Lousiana. I am proud to tell yall that they are thriving and steadily increasing in numbers year after year. During a recent trip down bayou Chene to Bayou Penchant, and from Bayou Penchant to Turtle Bayou, and then way back to the back of Turtle Bayou, I counted over 20 eagles in one day. I saw several pairs and 6 different nests. Most were too far away for my camera, but I did manage to get this precious few pictures of a true treasure of the swamp lands.
