Spurts Of Activity

Many hours of calm waiting interrupted by spurts of activity. That is how I am spending a lot of my time now. Attempting to be in the right position when a fish surfaces bringing eagles from far away perches back off the rivers edge. The juvenile eagles were the most active yesterday, starting before sunrise. The young eagles still learning how to catch fish. They do a lot more hovering and missing. Sometimes trying to pick up a fish to large for them to carry. Making several attempts before giving up. Fun to watch.

I did slip up on a small flock of Green Winged Teal. A smaller duck I have been wanting to see an photograph for a few years now. The ducks were so busy dabbling, feeding with heads down skimming the surface and just below. I waited and waited to get one of the ducks to raise a head with no luck. Finally caught a couple shots further out on stumps when males raised up and exercised their wings. As always I am thankful for all my opportunities to see the fascinating variety of birds that live and pass through my home area…

  1. Those tug boat captains must sure earn their money. I don’t think I’d want their job.
    I’m glad the eagle finally got a fish and glad you got some shots of the teals.
    Great shot of the cedar waxwings!
