Bald Eagle Sighting

They're back!! On the way to the barn this morning to do chores, we saw our first bald eagle sighting of the season...right in front of us. And wouldn't you know...I didn't have the camera...argh!

We are in a fly zone and every spring they start to appear. For me, it is a sure sign that spring is really going to come (we all know it does but the question is always when?). These majestic birds find their way to the barest dead tree and perch for hours watching the world...and every little creature...scurry by. We have watched a small grove of trees that had 27 at one time! Watching them swoop down in front of the truck to catch something to eat is breathtaking...a size you just can't fathom from a distance.

So on a brighter note...Spring is really here!

A heartfelt thanks to all who shared their camera best...still on the hunt but it sure looks like a Canon is the favorite! Hmm...now if I only had it this morning!?!?!

So cool you posted about a raptor! I love birds to the absolute limit and live in Michigan where I can just go up north and there they are! Isn't it so great seeing them, they are so majestic in person!

There is nothing like these magnificent creatures. We have several that regularly frequent our farm in fly overs, hunting I'm sure. We are very near Emory and Lake Fork, where they hold Eagle Fest every year. The populations are now increasing, which is such a wonderful sign. I'm very aware of how fortunate we are to witness these beautiful birds in flight. They are amazing!

Thanks for sharing!

There are a couple of places around here that we can go to see several bald eagles, but I've never seen 27 at one time. That's pretty amazing.
