It's almost as big as he is.

From photographer Rob McDougall.

Mmm. What a lovely thing to come home to see. I wonder if this was taken at Wickerman.

That would make sense. I hope we get some audio & video soon.

You're welcome, and sorry for the lurking.

About the bird - could this have something to do with promoting Scotland again, since the Golden Eagle was chosen as their national bird not so long ago?

Yeah, I just saw that article and it makes sense. I hope there are LOTS more pictures.

Why do you lurk? I'm curious.

Yesh, more eagle pictures!

Lurkdom: Mostly because I'm really lazy. I do have an LJ, but never really use it - if I comment like once a year it doesn't seem like worth the trouble.
And sometimes even because fandom is a little scary. Not here though. :)

I understand lazy, it just seems convenient to set up a reading list and see some locked posts. On my journal, though, all you're missing is my personal whinging: nearly all my fandom posts are public.

Eagle: Hobbits heavier than they used to be. Second breakfast must be stopped.

Oh, maybe he's in training for the Hobbit, where the eagles carry Bilbo and the Dwarves to their eyrie.
