Eagles in Flight

 

Both juvenile and adult Bald Eagles in flight.

 

 

Impressive wingspans are up to 6 1/2 ft wide.

 

 

So powerful and majestic.

 

 

And always a thrill to get to see one!

    • Thank you, Irene! Omgosh, I thought I saw an Eagle up in a tree along the St Mary’s Riverwalk in Ft Wayne. And no camera. 😦 We were on our bikes….at least I was getting exercise, lol.

      • Still to be here another two weeks. We’re having to stay on top of mfgr fixing RV repairs. I’m watching weather, trying to convince hubby to drive 2.5 hrs to IDNP for one day soon. 😊

      • If you’d rather not drive as far as IDNP, have you thought of visiting Brown County State Park? I think it is about an hour away from Indy. I have not been there yet but it is on my list of places to go. I have heard a lot of great things about it and the pics I have seen of it are lovely. 😊

      • Just pulled it up on google maps…..darn it’s three hours away. I’m in Ft Wayne. I just set up my e-bird notifications for the area, lo and behold there’s a small preserve called Eagle Marsh Nature Preserve within a half hour of me. Going there in next couple days for sure, a bird just sighted there’s not on my list! πŸ˜ƒ Whether I get a new bird or not, just the name of the preserve beckons me to visit….don’t you think? πŸ˜‰

  1. I love eagles! Really nice shots of that handsome bird and the young one. Last winter I saw 7 white-tailed eagle at ones. Near our cottage is an Eagle couple living all year long, but it was first time I saw seven eagles here. I assume they were migrating and had a stop here.

    • Thank you, Minna! Oh, I’d love to see a white-tailed, I’ve seen photos of them, quite beautiful too! At home in Maryland, we have a refuge that hosts hundreds of migratory Eagles each winter, it is spectacular to see so many at once. We went south this past winter for the first time to warmer temps, and I actually missed seeing all those Eagles at home. Hopefully the Eagles missed me! hehe

  2. We see the occasional Baldy around here, but I sure miss being able to keep an eye on the nest I found back at the old home. Fortunately we have a huge variety here to make up for missing out on the baby eaglets.
