This months moon is called a “Flower” moon. You can see what happens when the clouds snuff the light. The birds are silhouettes but If it was in golden light this shot would be excellent.
Juliette was coming over to say hello! I was glad to see her up and about!
I was so happy to see Juliette! She has one or two eaglets back in the nest. She likes to stretch her wings each day. She also sang a little song for me! Thats her in the top picture on the right watching her Romeo doing a fly by.
Each full moon has a name. The March full moon is called a “Worm” moon. This is what I found out about the Worm moon………Native Americans called this last full moon of winter the worm moon after the worm trails that would appear in the newly thawed ground. Other names include chaste moon, death moon, crust moon and sap moon, after the tapping of the maple trees.
Because the orbit is closer this month Its also a Super Worm moon!

Moe rarely poses for me! Maggie flew away from me. I must admit that hurt a bit. I haven’t seen her in months. I’d stop by and look for her but could never see her anywhere? Eagles do get upset If you do not stop in to say hello. They act just like humans!
Technically November is the “Beaver” moon,but because of my lucky shot showing Romeo’s talons silhouetted against a almost full moon,I’m calling November a Talon moon.
Having said that, here is the actual description on a Beaver moon. Click on the dot.
The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing is coming up on Saturday July 20. I remember watching the black and white TV images and holding my breath! Very few moments in human history have had so many people doing the same thing at the same time!
The Eagle landed in the sea of Tranquility on July 20th,1969. The Apollo 11 crew were Neil Armstrong,Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. Armstrong and Aldrin went down to the surface while Collins stayed in the Columbia orbiting the moon.
My eagle friends and I salute all of the good souls who worked so hard to make this remarkable achievement!
