Sherburne’s Bald Eagles




While photographing on Minnesota’s Sherburne NWR recently, the refuge Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) were seen all over the refuge. While driving around one of the many water pools, this eagle was sitting in a dead tree above the water: Driving a bit farther, the overhead, fading moon could be seen above the perched eagle: When […]

A Golden Opportunity




… to see a Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), that is. On the first of my 2 days in Badlands NP in late October, I was afforded the opportunity to see and photograph a Golden Eagle. I’ve seen a couple of goldens before … one in Yellowstone NP and a juvenile just outside Big Bend NP […]

“What Did One Eagle Say to the Other Eagle?” (Re-post)




(This post originally published in December 2010). … “I’m going fishing!” During the past couple of weeks, the Missouri weather has been cold.

All Dressed Up and Not a Hair … Urr, Feather … Out of Place




(This post originally published in December 2010) I spent 2 1/2 days last week photographing at the Squaw Creek NWR, located in northwest Missouri. The main attraction there were migrating Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), Trumpeter Swans (Cygnus buccinator), and Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens). Shortly after we arrived at the refuge, we took a quick tour, […]

Nature’s Way of Recycling




During my short, weekend trip to central Kansas, I ran across a rather gruesome sight … approximately 20 dead Sandhill Cranes. As I described in my last post, this area was hit hard the night before, by an extremely severe storm. In fact, when the height of the storm hit, we were just driving into […]

Those Glorious Birds!




One evening at Little Tutka Bay, while I finishing dinner, one of the other guests came to my cabin and informed me that they had been out fishing and were busy cleaning the fish, and would soon be done, leaving the scraps for the area birds to feast on. I quickly finished dinner, grabbed my […]

Beauty in Motion




Today, I’m taking a short break from the bear posts, but will be back with more Katmai Brown Bears very soon! As we sat along Clint’s Creek, near the Hallo Bay Bear Camp (Katmai National Park, Alaska) photographing bears fishing in the creek, I noticed an adult bald eagle was sitting across the creek from […]

Bald Eagle Interactions (Re-post)




(This post was originally published in January, 2010) The more I watch/photograph bald eagles, the more I’m amazed at their skills. A little over a week ago, I drove to Clarksville, MO for a few days of photographing wintering bald eagles on the Mississippi River. With our recent frigid temperatures, there were quite a few […]

Squaw Creek Bald Eagles, Part 2




In this second, and final post of the Squaw Creek Bald Eagles, I am sharing some flight shots of the eagles at the refuge. Flight shots are always at the top of my list of “To Do” things when photographing birds, so I’m always looking for in-flight possibilities. I saw this adult during my first […]
