Breakfast With An Eagle

I had breakfast with an Eagle this past Saturday.

We had just experienced a previous day of very warm temps (a tease from Mother Nature).  The early morning sunrise was gorgeous.   The beginning of another teasingly warm day could already be felt.  Our ice-over had mostly melted away.

I with my cup of coffee (and binoculars and cameras).  Mr. Eagle arrived on Lippincott’s Channel Marker #3 with his breakfast.

As I sipped and watched, he ate and watched.  No words needed amongst friends.

Hard to beat a breakfast like this!

  1. Donna… I zoomed in on the eagle and saw that he also had a hot cup of coffee next to the fish AND he was reading the wildlife section of this morning’s Washington Post!!! 😉

    • Every morning, I’m usually up before sunrise, and I love to watch as the sky lightens over the water, which triggers the world to awaken. Such peace and serenity! Have an eagle appear just makes it that much better. 🙂

  2. Amazing photos, and LUCKY you to get to have breakfast with an eagle! I know exactly where this is- growing up we kept a boat at Lippincott’s 🙂

    • Congrats on your pair successfully returning Amanda! I’m working on my osprey post now, I was out of town during our area Ospreys’ return, they got to watch me return this season, lol. They are definitely back, I’m hoping we have a pair take possession of our platform this year.
