Longboat Key resident Pat Shutello was sitting on her patio, worrying about the damages Superstorm Sandy inflicted on her New Jersey home, when she received a good omen:
She spotted one of Longboat Key’s bald eagles at a closer range than she had ever seen them and snapped a few photos.
Shutello was “feeling so blue” but took the bird’s appearance as a positive sign. At her request, we won’t name the condominium where she lives, because it already experiences its share of hawk gawkers.
