As my family and I were hanging outside of our house a couple of weeks ago...a Bald Eagle flew right over the top of our heads (they are quite impressive looking). We are located off Lake Wylie, and I've also heard there have been other sightings around the Lake Norman area, and the Catawba River.

I've had deer, fox, racoons, rabbits, snakes, a small lizard, lots of beautiful birds all in my backyard, which is wooded. And lots of bugs and so many beautiful butterflies.
