I have been very fortunate to have been able to photo shoot a pair of bald eagles during the last week. Even had an immature but was unable to photograph him. His beauty however was so amazing. To just see him take off over the water.One can not find the words to describe the magnificence of these birds. I have been very lucky with bald eagles the last couple of years. And I can tell you they are a bird that I will never get tired of watching. They are wonderful parents and watching them fish and catch their prey is totally amazing to see. The nests are huge,the young are hungry and the parents,well they just never stop when raising these beautiful babes.I have been getting questions on where these particular birds are and can we come to see them. These birds are on private property I have permision to be on. I am afraid the premesis is out of bounds for anyone to go onto. I am very fortunate to have permission and would never jepardise that previledge. Therefore I am not at liberty to disclose any information on these birds other that please enjoy what I have taken here. I thank you for your understanding in this matter. Being that this pair is still around and their young. You may be lucky in seeing bald eagles still around our waterways. Good luck.

I went out first thing this morning. We have red breasted mergansers,common mergansers,buffleheads and then a bald eagle flew in. Then to my surprise another bald eagle flew in. A pair! They sat for some time. I took up residence in a pine tree for cover before they came in. And it worked, they didn't see me. It was snowing and windy. Their feathers were blowing in the wind. And of coarse they sat behind the tree so I didn't get a great photo shoot of them. But its okay. And as the story goes. Crappy lighting. All in all though. I can honestly say it made my day!!! What totally amazing birds.

Was very fortunate to get a quick glimpse of this beautiful adult bald eagle today. As my 150-500 lens is in being repaired I only had my 300. He flew to another tree and I could hear that beautiful eagle cry. Then he came back and sat. I didn't want to disturb him from his important hunting at the time of day it was,so I continued on. What a beauty.
