      My husband and I live right off of I 64 on Corydon Ridge Rd NE and today while standing in our garden plot we looked up and there was an eagle flying above us! We see so many hawks out here but this was clearly a bald eagle. I had told my husband a year or so ago that I had seen one but he figured I had spotted another hawk. Well today he confirmed my excitement!!

    St. Patrick’s County Park in South Bend. There are now three eggs in the nest and there is a webcam so they can be watched when the adults care for the eggs, when the eggs hatch and when the young take flight and leave the nest.
