News about myself AND the Eagles.

I had five days off from work following the busy holidays. I enjoyed getting out to see the eagles near my home. I hope you will enjoy this slide show of some of what these eagles shared with me. All photos except for one were taken from public viewing areas or in my car. I do my best to practice good eagle etiquette when I am around these birds. The one closer photo you will see here was taken only after a local newspaper photographer had selected a close spot under a tree where the eagle just sat and posed. As the photographer returned to his car he said "Go Stand where I was (in a foot of snow actually LOL) and you will get a nice shot from there. Well since a human had already been that close and the eagle seemed very undisturbed I did go to that spot for one of these pictures.

IMPORTANT HINT If you hit the pause as this loads then you can the next and watch the show on your own time.

Eagle Season Online is also getting somewhat more active. Pelican Harbor saw both adults on the Nest this past week. Look for 5 nests online out of Channel Islands this next season. Maine also had 2 adults on the nest most likely now believed to be the Original Pair and "owners" of the nest. Intruders do seem to still be in the area however. Kent and Oregon have both seen one adult on their nest this past week as well. NCTC also has had one quesitonable visitor perhaps. Blackwater is "winging it" their fans know what I mean. Cape Coral has a hatch or two and some thing they have spotted a little bobblehead. Tesoro is due to hatch in the next week. Stay tuned our Eagle Season is slowly picking up pace.

Glo, I am overwhelmed at the wonderful pictures you have taken. You are so fortunate to live where there is such a "gathering of eagles", and we are so fortunate that you share the beauty with us.

So glad you had the time off and enjoyed it with the eagles!

Breathtaking, absolutely BREATHTAKING!!! Some of those photos belong in a magazine!!! Or, at least on a tee shirt!!!! I agree with Marcia - that guy from the paper that told you to stand where he had been had better watch out! With that camera you are armed and dangerous girl!!!!
