A spring afternoon with bald eagles

Bald eagle

Bald eagleRancho Murieta has a wealth of wildlife, but Murietans value our bald eagles above everything. They're a thrilling sight, for sure. Neighbor Paul Anderson, who has lived in the community for 20 years, calls himself a "hobbyist" photographer. He encountered eagles over the weekend. "I saw one eagle on a tree near the nest at Lake Clementia Saturday morning," he writes, "and then the female ( I think as they are larger than the males) flew into the nest tree.  A few moments later the male flew over to join her on the nesting tree."

The haul

What happens when you put together 700 pounds of trout, 130 children and a sunny day at Lake Clementia? Kiwanis Club Kids Fishing Day. Katarina Hartmann, 10, was one of the star anglers Sunday morning at the lake. She counted a hefty 2.04-pound trout among the slew of fish she brought to the Rancho Murieta Fishing Club cleaning station (and then carried away, right). The annual event is co-sponsored by the Fishing Club and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Children learn the importance of good water quality, maintaining habitat for fish, fishing ethics, casting and fishing, and the care and cleaning of caught fish. Trout were planted for the event. A free barbecue lunch capped the day. Students from the Rancho Murieta Key Club helped Kiwanis volunteers prepare and serve food provided by Raley’s.
