Default MMTPT344~March 3, 2015~I'm a Bird Watcher-Bucket List

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #344


I'm a Bird Watcher-Bucket List



Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

The Rest of the Story:

1: Is there anything so majestic as the American Bald Eagle? Soaring through the skies seemingly effortlessly, they just make you stop and stare. You can't help it. Especially if you are lucky enough to see one up close, and see how HUGE they are.

2: The Bald Eagle can be elusive though as they don't like being around people much and therefore they are on almost every bird watchers bucket list. To spot one up close is the wish of many who sit by lakes and streams for unknown amounts of time after hearing of one being spotted.

3: The Bald Eagle is the only eagle native to and confined to North America with almost 1/2 of the world's population of these majestic birds living in Alaska and the northwestern US mostly due to the salmon population. Dead and dying fish are a major food source for the eagle. It takes about 5 yrs. for the eagle to gain it's adult plumage which is a sign that the bird is sexually mature. An adult female is about 36" long in body length with a wing span of 72-85". That is one HUGE bird. Another interesting fact: the adult eagle's eye is about the same size as a human but is 4x more sharp than an adult with perfect vision. And one more: the Bald Eagle mates for life and usually returns to the same area yearly when mating.

4: Spring time is one of the best times to spot these majestic creatures and many a birdwatcher has come up with unique excuses for spending hours along the lake shore, spending wads of cash on the latest and greatest binoculars, camera equipment, and even camping gear. Yes, seriously gals, these hardy folk have been known to camp out in sight of a nest waiting for a glimpse of them.

5: But what to do if you work full time, have a wife at home that wants attention, kids that need tucked in, drains that need unclogged, and grass that needs mowed. It's really hard to sneak off for a bit of bird watching at times. Rut Roh.........

Challenge Translation:

Bring Eagles, bring their nests, bring their habitats. Just get those Bald Eagles to the northeastern shores in time for some spring sightings. Now don't be bringing the dead fish along or you can come in the back door for sure

EPEC-extra points for extra cookies:

Bring along some encouraging scripture.

Destination Station:

This week our destination is Maryland. If you would like an destination for your card, how about sending it to Dave. Dave is the husband of SCSr Forums at Splitcoaststampers

to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit Forums at Splitcoaststampers in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT344 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Forums at Splitcoaststampers is a quick link to the MMTPT344 challenge gallery

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

I have to admit that the card I have made as a sample for the WT later this week would have been pretty perfect - but since I am on a day off today I thought I would make this card for Dave.

This is a first! The first time I have ever combined challenges and the first time I have resorted to downloading a colouring page. I tried to draw my eagle but couldn't get the scale or head right. Forums at Splitcoaststampers is my card.

Wow, thank you ladies for all of your prayers and taking the time to honor Dave with a card!! He does know that the some of the DD sisters from our DD forum are praying for him but he is not aware of these prayers at all and will be so humbled and thankful He is working so hard and has just had his 6th chemo treatment- we are praying that it is effective since there is no cure for this type of cancer but the chemo could put it into remission for a while We are hoping that he can retire soon so he can get some rest but our health insurance is with his job, so we definitely need wisdom on the timing Thanks again for thinking of us and all of your prayers- hugs and God Bless!

I'm glad to see other birds besides the eagle. Although a majestic bird, I do not think I have any stamps with an eagle. I'll dig around because you just never know. It's too late today, but I'll work on this card tomorrow.

Default " Strength for Dave "

OH Julie I feel for you guys and are keeping you in prayers as well. I just cant imagine how it is for him, as even with normal strength it is tough. Here is one of my fav. verses for Dave, and I hope it can lift him up as well, I love it when I know I am going through a rougher time...Forums at Splitcoaststampers

Default Eagle Collage

And here I thought I didn't have any eagle stamps! I found an SU stamp as well as a couple of stampscapes silhouettes. I live in the Pacific Northwest and am blessed with seeing these magnificent birds quite often. We have two parkes we hike through that has nests and we see them soaring high in the sky or at times one will be in the nest or on a branch nearby. I really enjoyed making this card in their honor!
