Bald & Bold

 A few days ago, we saw our very first Bald Eagle in the wild!! I was so excited, and could hardly believe it. We watched as he flew into the large dead tree. Here is how far away he was.


Good thing my camera is a Super Zoom!





When you soar like an eagle, you attract the hunters.

He looks healthy and very regal.
Great shots of him. Your zoom really works. My camera has a lousy zoom.
Love seeing things (birds and critters) in their natural habitat.

Isn't it the most thrilling thing! We just saw two go by our house, as low as the treetops. We have seen then here, but never THAT low. I still can hardly believe it. We don't live but maybe a mile or so from the river and they were headed there.

That is so cool! The first place we saw a bald eagle was on the site on a Civil War Battlefield. We thought it was so touching to see it there.

It's such a treat to see the Bald Eagle. They are such a grand bird.
I saw my very first one at the creek this year. You have taken some
lovely shots. So glad you got to see him in person. He's a handsome
fellow.
