Taken at the Pittsburgh Aviary. The few eagles I have seen in the wild caught me 'not camera ready'.

I've had the great fortune to see eagles quite a few times, in different places. This bird is from a trip to Alaska where they were plentiful. Where we stayed in Juneau, they were sitting on the streetlights like pigeons, so many at one time. This particular bird was a place that we hiked to. I was on a very small boat, The Discovery, on a cruise with 6 other guests and 4 crew. It was the best trip ever in terms of seeing wildlife.


I've been amazed at the comeback of eagles, especially around here. There is at least one nesting pair just an hour from here, at Cowan Lake, very close to the farm where I used to have Teddy. I was driving home one afternoon and I saw an eagle on the ground, next to the road, checking out some roadkill. It was thrilling to see him.

When i took this photo, i didnt see the eagle in flight off in the distance. It wasnt until i looked at the photos on my laptop that i spotted it. Photo bombed by a bald eagle!

At the National Zoo in DC

On a tour boat trip from Port Clyde, Maine


On a different trip to Maine near the above location


At the Myakka River State Park in Florida


At that state park there is a long raised wooden walkway leading out over the swampy, reedy ground out to the edge of the water for a better view of the birds.


At the very end of that wooden walkway a local volunteer birding aficionado was pointing out the various different species that could be seen. He had just excitedly pointed out a Caspian Tern when the above eagle flew into view. I took about a dozen pictures as the eagle crossed the sky. When it was gone, the birder said, "Oh we see those here all the time. But did you see the Caspian Tern? They are really rare around here."

Crossing the Delaware River today after heavy rain and flooding. The river is really high. This is the Washington Crossing Bridge (yes - that Washington) from Bucks County, PA to Mercer County, NJ.

The Eagle

BY ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;

Close to the sun in lonely lands,

Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.


The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;

He watches from his mountain walls,

And like a thunderbolt he falls.
