Video/Under Watchful Eyes

Uploaded .

#RPM Challenge 2013#
“Under Watchful Eyes” is my 10th song for the RPM Challenge 2013. Thank you for taking the time to listen.

The adjoining video was filmed February 6, 2013 along the Mississippi River near Red Wing Minnesota (approximately 50 miles from where I live)

Oh it’s cold outside
Winter won’t let go this time
Let’s go watch the raptors fly
The river under watchful eyes

It’s eagles that I come to see
Main channel is where they’ll be
Fly and then they perched again
Hunting right in front of me

It’s the river in the winter
With eagles all around
Watching from the trees and sky
Patience is their strategy
Vigilant as they can be
The river under watchful eyes

A ripple in the river rise
A fish no more than finger size
Lingered just a bit too long
The eagle swooped and it was gone

Talons holding on so tight
Feed before another night
A meal of fish will keep them warm
Against the winter wind and storm

I can hear Marty Robbins singing this. Such a suggestion of sadness.

Nice song, nice vid. I would like the vid better if it weren't March and 20 below zero outside this morning, but hey... at least you got eagles. Me, I just got crows and magpies.

Another fine song....very clean and clear performance. Love the lyrics....especially the eagle reference. Many years ago ai had a once in a lifetime encounter with g an eagle while fishing the Chippewa Flowage in WI.

Hi,Greg. We had several pairs of Golden Eagles roosting at the ridge reservoir. one pair of balds fishing Boquet Creek. the fish were being watched by the raptors, the birds watched by Greg.
