Bald Eagle 02272016 (2)We watched him and took the pictures from our front porch.  These were taken over a month ago but we saw it and a younger one that hadn’t matured with the white feathering last week.  We also had a golden eagle here most of the winter.

    I have yet to see one of these in real life. Well, OK, I did see one in a bird show once, but that doesn’t count. Lucky you, and well done on the photographs too!

      We have had a pair staying here at the farm year round for about 6-7 years and I had never seen them in nature before we came here. They’re magnificient and we watch them very carefully because they could easily carry off a baby calf but so far there’s enough small animals and deer for them to stay alive. They have swooped a little close to the chickens a couple time but the chickens have become weary and two roosters help watch over the hens.

        A baby calf?!? Wow! I am excited to know more about what you are doing, and if I may, how old you are? We have 25 acres we bought two years ago, and now are uncertain about actually living there. Over half of it is woods, the other half pasture and a very old house. Are we to old? I know, like you have a crystal ball… lol! Anyway, for comparison, I am 63. 🙂

            Thank you! My husband has become iffy about this adventure, but I still look forward to it. Maybe your blog will help some to encourage him again. 🙂

      You’re so welcome. I feel so blessed to watch them here and they are magnificient. We have a pair of golden eagles here in the valley too but I’ve not been lucky enough to have the camera with me when I’ve seen them.
