Bald Eagles are interesting birds and have a life cycle that is fun to observe. They return to certain trees and nests year after year, and then depart for months. Sometimes they have one eaglet, two eaglets, and rarely three eagles. The pair of eagles that inspired this book most often had three eaglets. Often their nests are difficult to observe, but the author was very lucky to be able to clearly watch this particular nest over a dozen years. Children today have a much easier time watching eagles and their patterns than when the author was a child. On Samish Island today there are quite a few nests. And on Samish Island today, the eagles are well fed and breed successfully.

About the Author

Kristine Goodan lives on Samish Island, Washington and has watched eagles return in strong numbers to the island.
In this story, she recounts the seasonal cycle from May until August, when the eaglets appear in the
nest, to their fledging, and then their flying away. This book is intended to be cherished and read by a parent or another adult to a child between four and eight years old. Thaïs Armstrong is an artist who also lives on Samish Island. She and her husband
Howard are serious birders as well.
