Bald Eagles On The First Day Of Spring

It was a pleasant first day of Spring. The eagles seemed to be enjoying it too. The water is receding from the flooded fields. A lot of fish were left stranded. It has created a feeding bonanza for the eagles. This time of year normally the eagles are getting scarce, the adults busy at their nests sitting on eggs. In Western Kentucky now you are liable to see an eagle anywhere. The population is booming…

    Fish a plenty under the flood, celebration. I find it amusing to see the four young eagles almost frolicking about, almost ‘clumsy’. Where as, the mature eagles spread wings, intent faces, and their smooth landings are so graceful. Maybe I’m just reading into the pix, and it’s just the look of the patchy color of the multitude of young competing verses the beautiful color pattern of the individual mature ones. Nice round of a very different type of viewing. I’d have never thought about the plethora of fish under the flood.

      Ellen Bunnell,
      The young eagles do act like kids sometimes. A little clumsy, some a little aggressive. Testing adults at times too it appears. I thought this might happen before it did. I recalled as a kid when flood waters fell it locked in some bluegill off the river. I could catch them with only a bare shiny hook…

  2. Looks like a great time for the juveniles to practice catching fish too.
    Great shots! I’m glad you’re drying out!
