Eagles

The Bald Eagles on the Illinois River. These have their
white head, so the are at least four years old.
  I saw a couple more where there was no place to stop and take
pics.
It's February already......March brings nice days.

GREAT.

Deena, Great pictures. I didn't know you had eagles in that part of the country. Probably because they're the American symbol???

Arent they just the most powerful looking birds you've ever seen? I love to watch them fly, when I get a chance to see them, they are so big and fly so gracefully, but all of God creatures are graceful! (except me....when I slipped off the curb 3 years ago and broke my ankle)

Love to you ALWAYS
Annette

To see eagles must be one of the most amazing things.....I have only ever seen one in South Africa......we were on safari and there was a beautiful fish eagle sitting on a piece of wood by the side of the lake....absolutely magical.....

Tku for sharing...

We have several bald eagels living along the Delaware River here in Delhi/DeLancey. They are always so majestic looking. Everyone just stops and stares at them. Me included. I had one fly right over my car once and I got a great view of all the feathers on his wings. So pretty.

When I called Sunday to tell you I was Eagle watching here in MO, I had no idea you were up there also. It was a great nature day all around. I had never seen so many Bald Eagles (white heads, thank you)in the trees all together. In AZ up behind our cabin in the rocks we would see some flying/nesting...but never a bunch just in the trees. Thanks for sharing your photos, I couldn't get any.

I was thinking. Why is it you can see the beauty of Bald Eagles, but not your own "Bald Regalness" of having not only endured but overcome with stunning results?
Just sayin'......:-)

Deena, love the pictures and your blogs. We have bald eagle watch in March on Beaver Lake here where we live. They nest in the dead trees of the coves. With our recent ice storms they will have a good choice of dead trees...
