Eagle Encounter

Living up the lake, we spend lots of time watching the birds that come to visit. One day last spring, a Bald Eagle landed on one of our floating stumps. What a photographic opportunity. And he stayed quite a while letting us view him through the front sliding glass door.
We often see eagles flying overhead, or in the tall trees surrounding Hole in the Wall. But this was the first time we had one land so close. Of course, a Bald Eagle is easy to identify. But for some of the other birds, I use the Bird Songs Bible that Wayne got me for Christmas. It's a great reference book including clips of bird songs for those you can hear but not see. -- Margy


  1. Great spot, you were in the right place at the right time.

  2. What a sight that would have been!
    We have had a nest of eagles near us -it was built on top of a hydro pole. We got to see the babies grow and roam - from a distance tho.

  3. great bird

  7. This is a beautiful shot! Eagles are amazing creatures...I saw one several months ago in a tree near our river house, I had mistaken him for an Osprey until I realized it was an eagle!!!
