We were treated this morning to the rare sight of a pair of bald eagles resting on the ground of the field to the south of the abbey, just past the enclosure wall.

         
 

These magnificent birds, only recently removed from the list of threatened species, have been seen in various places around Kentucky. One of our monks has spotted a nest in our woods. But this is the first time they have been so conspicuously visible on the monastery property.
