I thought I saw an eagle!

I just received this as an LC google alert and ....."I thought I saw an eagle" ;-) and I did!

I can't recall seeing LC wear that tie before.

Well ... your eyes are probably better than mine, Bev, but might it not be a vulture?

I think it is a dove! But I currently have sick eyes so Leonard's lyrics about doves may be making me want it to be a dove :lol:

ah Hartmut, I thought of adding that for fun!
But I think Gwen, with not sick but sharp eagle eyes :) could be right and it is a dove!
In fact, I think the bird is carrying an olive branch!

Or maybe it's an eagle with the same unlikely message :lol:

I've been doing a lot of family research lately and my ancestors have coats of arms with eagles so that could account for my enthusiasm and pre-occupation with eagles at the moment :)
