Sunday Captures And A Few Leftovers

The cold returned yesterday. It looks like we are in for a winter of one sunny day a week. I hope that pattern changes. Did not find a lot happening. Lots of Goldeneye ducks on the lakes but hard to get close to them with hunting season going on. Still going through pics from last Friday of the eagle pair on the deer carcass. Added a few of those to the post today…

  1. Those white cheek patches on the ducks must make them easily identifiable.
    Nice shots, as always!

    Just curious, have you ever seen an Eagle pair start from scratch in making a nest? The tree, that now the huge nest is weighting on, looks so old and broken. The large broken off branches that hold the nest seem to be broken off in just the right places for the broad winged Eagle to fly in and land on, then out. Yet, the other nonbroken large branches have the growth to have leaves of protection in the right season. I’m wondering if those larger stumped branches were ‘topped’ by the Eagles themselves? Nice pix as always and yes, N.H.G. is right about the cheek patches, and you about the golden eyes. They do pop beautifully in some of your close up photos. Still flabbergasted about the Deer carcass being fed upon by Eagles. Thanks again for all your posts, even though we’ve not had much sunshine lately.

      Ellen Bunnell,
      The nest in the pics today and yesterday is a new nest. It is the one that had the red oak leaves around it a month or so ago. The two eagles could barely fit in it when I first saw it. Now it is a full sized nest with plenty of room. Your Welcome glad others get to enjoy the cool stuff I get to see…

        I went back to look. Wow! All I could think was that busy as a beaver is too old a statement to use. Endustrious Eagles would work. (I know industrious is the right spelling.) Very hard working creatures.
