Looooove of Eagles

Tomorrow, Wednesday February 11th at 6:00 PM, the Central Library is presenting a free viewing of the film American Eagle. As seen on IPTV! Meet film-maker Neil Rettig! But first you have to take a look at the life-sized eagle nest replica in the lobby. It's huge! Iowa is prime eagle-watching territory, especially along the rivers in the winter. Have you ever seen the juveniles? They seem to get adult-sized really fast but they still have their fuzzy baby feathers and they're kind of clumsy and dorky. Then they grow up to be exquisitely handsome and graceful fliers. Gives a girl hope.

The eagle's nest at the library is excellent -- especially since I'll never climb a tree to actually sense how large these nests are! Thanks much for the fabulous display.
