As we back the car up the driveway,
we see a mallard pair standing on the roof ridge
looking down the hill toward the Petitcodiac River marshes.
What are they doing on the roof?
Then as we back into the roadway,
we notice behind our neighbour's house,
two Bald Eagles sitting, watching the ducks.
The ducks fly toward the river
and the larger eagle flies too.
Round to the front of our house, we drive.
No ducks in sight,
When we return form errands,
the smaller eagle still sits;
sits still, two hours later,
