Fun Friday: Taunting the Seniors

Bald Eagle interactions are always interesting to watch. While at the Loess Bluffs NWR in northwest Missouri recently, I ran across a pair of adult Bald Eagles perched very close together in trees that contained a pair of bald eagle nests: As I photographed the pair, a juvenile Bald Eagle flew over the trees, causing […]

Immature & Adult Bald Eagles

On my recent trip to photograph Bald Eagles and Trumpeter Swans at the Loess Bluffs NWR, the number of eagles were not nearly as high as I would have liked to see. But I did get several opportunities to photograph some of the eagles. Immature Bald Eagle numbers seem to increase dramatically every year … […]

Fun Friday: Where’s Waldo???

Today’s “Fun Friday” post’s images were captured last week during my 2-day visit to the Loess Bluffs NWR, in northwest Missouri. At this time of year, one of the highlights at the refuge is often the number of Snow Geese that lay over at the refuge and feed and rest up for the remainder of […]

As we celebrate today, please enjoy some bald eagles I’ve met along the journey: Just a very small collection of my Bald Eagle […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Brrrrrrrr!!! Another cold day in the Heartland! Got up this morning, with much hesitation, with the outside temperatures at -3F. That reminded me of one of my trips to Alaska’s “Valley of Eagles”, located outside Haines, Alaska. So I decided it was very appropriate to go back and post a few of my favorite images […]

Fun Friday: Out On a Limb

While editing some older, Alaska images, I ran across this one image that I don’t believe I ever posted. While photographing bald eagles in the Valley of Eagles (near Haines, Alaska), this adult eagle flew in and landed in a dead tree a short distance from me: In this image, he is conversing with another […]

Valley of the Eagles

Today’s post features another Alaska image, one captured along the Chilkat River Valley near Haines, Alaska. In this protected region, also known as “The Valley of the Eagles”, warm thermals keep the Chilkat River open well into November and a late salmon run attracts thousands of bald eagles along a 2.5 mile stretch. This image […]

It’s About That Time!

With temperatures getting colder next week and winter knocking on our door, it’s about time for Bald Eagles and Short-eared Owls to again take residence in Missouri for the winter. In fact, I saw an adult eagle soaring over a field near my home just a week or so ago. And yesterday, a good friend […]

A Strange Looking Eagle

I am currently charging up batteries, gathering photo equipment, and planning for capturing the annual Perseids meteors. Thus, I likely won’t have time to be on social media over the next few days, possibly up to a week. I am, however, going back through some of my older posts and preparing them for scheduled, automatic […]

Pied-billed Grebes

Another common bird at the Leonabelle Turnbell Birding Center (Port Aransas, TX) was the Pied-billed Grebe (Podilymbus podiceps). Most were in their winter coats, with either a missing or indistinct ring around their bill. However, at least one was showing the ring quite well (note the ringed bill on the bottom image, below). Here are […]
