Children and adults alike love to watch birds and to hear about their stories. In this book, Grandma and her grandson Waylon spend several months watching an eagle's nest and learning about eagles.

Bald Eagles are interesting birds and have a life cycle that is fun to observe. They return to certain trees and nests year after year, and then depart for months. Sometimes they have one eaglet, two eaglets, and rarely three eagles. The pair of eagles that inspired this book most often had three eaglets. Often their nests are difficult to observe, but the author was very lucky to be able to clearly watch this particular nest over a dozen years. Children today have a much easier time watching eagles and their patterns than when the author was a child. On Samish Island today there are quite a few nests. And on Samish Island today, the eagles are well fed and breed successfully.
