Not Many Chances

Did not have many chances yesterday. Saw plenty of eagles, but almost all of them soaring high on a much cooler day. The first to feel like fall temperature wise, only getting in to the seventies. It was a pleasant day to be out although the sun was late to come out, arriving around mid-afternoon. The big ol’ turtle was still lurking in the shallows at Duncan Lake…

Bald Eagles In The Afternoon

What a splendid afternoon I had a couple days ago. Reminded me of duck hunting days. Hours and days of waiting. Then it happens and the birds start coming in. You don’t know where to look? The sound of eagles screeching at each other and zooming in to perch all around. You try but can not keep up with where all the eagles are located. To add to the fun the eagles came in all ages. Juvenile, Immature, Maturing and Adults. The following day the action once again returns to nearly nothing. Once again the anticipation, sheer boredom settles in. So thankful am I to have the chance to spend the time outdoors required to chance upon those almost magical times when it happens…

Memorable Day Has Me Behind

It was one of those memorable days yesterday. Amazing how one day there is nothing happening. The next day the action is almost non-stop. This causes a good problem as I have no time to look through the almost three thousand pics I took. As soon as I post this I will be heading out again. Raining now so today may be one of those nothing happening days. That is how it goes, fun days like yesterday will keep one going for a while…

Slow Mornings

Not much happening the past two mornings. With the heat the eagles have not worked on the nest. Flying to a tree to get in the shade shortly after the sun comes up. Being a weekend and with the heat I have not been out in the afternoons. May get out today…
