Fly Like An Eagle








I heard the screech and knew they were around somewhere. They like to perch on the electric poles and that's where I found them.

  2. Will they stay for the winter or do they go south soon?

  3. AHH, I just remembered you live in MN, they'd better migrate or be Popsicles! I live in semi-desert Colorado/Utah area. We have bald eagles that stay year round. Magnificent creatures.

  4. They are something. These are youngsters. They do not migrate. I saw a magnificent adult breeding pair in the same spot last winter and then later that same day they swooped down low over my front yard. The wingspan is incredible. We have had a breeding pair of red tail hawks for as long as we have lived here, so I have got the raptor sector covered!

  5. Occasionally, I do get to see an eagle here. Last year I was witness to a mating dance...talk about a thrill!!!

    When I left Massachusetts, almost 2 years ago the Bald Eagles were making a comeback. So much so that it was almost a regular occurence to see them (if you knew where to look.) That, too, is thrilling.

    I stayed with friends in Minnesota, who lived on the Mississippi. we spent hours "eagle watching."

    The Eagle and other raptors are considered sacred by the Abenaki and other Nations because they fly closest to Creator and carry our prayers.

    glad to know you are a "clicker," Sandra! :)

  8. Fantastic photos :-) What a coincidence, we have some birds of pray near us, Red Kites, they were giving us a wonderful display today, and i was trying to get a photo with my phone, but i was on horseback, and couldn't see the screen properly! All i got was sky :-)

  9. We get a variety of raptors. I'm a big fan. Our black eagle is the biggest. Huge wing span but not as big as your bald eagle. I once saw mating hawks lock talons & fall through the sky. Oh my! And the osprey often take mullet in our bay, sometimes so big they can't get airborn again. The perigrine does me in though. So small, so fast, so deadly!

    I would be in heaven seeing your eagles in my back yard. Incredible. They are gorgeous.

  10. I do click the pet food button! I have never seen them mate.
    They are incredible. pajama pants!
    Queen, They have an incredible wing span. These are juvenile bald eagles, the big guys of the eagle family. We have black eagle also. They like to soar way up in the air. They are so large you can tell they are big way, way up there.
    Jo, I have a 70-300 lens, so I was able to get this from a couple hundred feet away.

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
