Picture of the day

Not great photos, but they are my pick of the day as I've never seen so many eagles all in one place. 12-14 were gathered in two separate clumps of trees off of Red bridge Road. We think there were actually 13. But it was tough to tell. One flew off between the trees and may have been counted twice. I don't know anything about the habits of eagles, but I didn't realize they would hang out together in such high numbers.

Severe crop


  1. Wow, these are great shots Kari! I love tree shots either backlit or against a gray sky. And the close up of the two eagles is fantastic!

  2. Dear BlueKat:

    I have never seen a bald eagle in the wild... Let alone several in a tree. Fascinating picture.

  3. Hi Mike,
    Thanks. They're not my favorite shots, but there weren't too many options for location. The close up is a cheat. I cropped it in photoshop.

  4. Hi Jack,
    I haven't seen so many in one location. I've lived in this area all my life and didn't see my first bald eagle in the wild until just a few years ago. I think they must be on the increase. It's always exciting to spot them.
