It might be hard to make out this bird’s markings from this photo. This juvenile bald eagle followed us around the marsh. We could hear it calling from deep in the trees until it finally made its presence known, spooking a great blue heron off the water, as it flew at almost ground level and rose up over us.
Had a hard time catching it with the camera but finally held it steady long enough to get a half decent shot. Gotta love how many of these birds are everywhere around here now. 10 years ago, I would not have believed I would see a bald eagle when stepping out my front door, or sitting in the Kmart parking lot, but I have done just that. They’re everywhere now. Hope their numbers keep growing!!!
Technically it’s the first day of spring, but this image sums up my feelings about it all. I’m always sad to see the Winter leave. This was taken in February at the Marsh. I’ll be looking forward to seeing more Winter next year (or in a week or two if the “Powers that Be” still favor a late snow, like in the past).
Another view from the Marsh. The sycamore tree is particularly beautiful in the winter season and one of my favorite trees to photograph.
