A Full Day Outdoors In Western Kentucky

Put in a full day yesterday. In the morning checking a few spots I have not checked in a while. Climbed a small hill and checked an eagles nesting spot that was only used one year. I found a pair of eagles not far from that nest. The old tiny nest does not look like it has been worked on. Thinking the eagles were just catching the sunlight as it rose perched in the tallest tree.

Moving on I visited the tailwaters of Barkley Dam. About 10 pelicans were there until the fisherman started coming up river. Then they took to the air, circled and headed up to the lake

Went home and packed a lunch and headed for Duncan Lake. I did get a little action there. Today will be the last day Duncan Lake is open to the public. The spot closes until the end of March. It has been pretty slow at Duncan this year. Perhaps not cold enough up north to trigger eagles to migrate south for the winter. Bald Eagles don’t migrate all at once as many song birds do. Eagles being more individualistic. Move when food sources get tough when feeding spots freeze over. That said it is just a guess on my part, from observation and reading. Have not spent enough years viewing eagles to believe I have a factual understanding. Watching eagles each day something I would never have imagined doing ten years ago….

  1. I’m glad the eagles are making such a strong comeback. I can remember when I didn’t think I’d ever get to see one.
    You got some great shots of them!
