This is my first post. One has to start somewhere and the beginning is a good place to start. The purpose of this blog is to discuss various topics such as art, history, geography, music, philosopy, and so on with a few surprises thrown in here and there to make it all exciting for all of us. The name for this blog is taken from the Latin name for the Bald Eagle, Haliaeetus, and the Greek equivalent, in case you are wondering, is Haliaetos. The full name for the Bald Eagle is Haliaeetus leucocephalus of course. The name seems rather appropriate given the subject matter, so I will attempt to keep the discussion far reaching, stimulating and enlightening. Feel free to comment when the mood strikes but keep it upbeat and positive. I am not perfect, so if you notice an error, either in the facts or the spelling of a word, let me know.
Over time you will also see plenty of my photographic images which currently are mostly land and seascape plus some wildlife, as you can see from the photos of the waterfowl at Lost Lagoon at Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada). Since I am a resident of the lower mainland, you will see images taken mostly around the Vancouver area for now. Others may follow in time. Enjoy them and please comment!
