“Low Altitude Flight”

Today’s post features a few more previously unpublished images of wintering Bald Eagles along the Mississippi River, near Davenport, Iowa. While photographing the eagles fishing in the river, the eagles sometimes fly low over the banks of the river, offering the great joy of capturing images of them low and close to where I was […]

Fun Friday: Carryout for Two, Please

Today’s post features one of the osprey I blogged about yesterday. I didn’t realize it until I edited the images, but discovered that one of the osprey emerged from the lake with two fish in his talons! I had never seen this happen before, so I was really shocked to witness this feat! Here are […]

It’s Not Just For Little Birds!

Today’s post is the first, of many, from the Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, located along Lake Erie in northern Ohio. Magee Marsh is well known for a stopover location for migrating warblers in the spring. These warblers are small, especially in comparison to this bald eagle’s nest that is located at the western entrance to […]

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 […]

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 […]
