We have tried to go out on our lake on our boat every day, at least for a little while.
We have 2 or 3 eagles that live on our lake. Two immature eagles and one bald headed eagle adult.
Through riding around so much, we have found some of their favorite perching sites and I am thrilled to take as many pictures of them as I can.
I think the adult bald eagle is getting pretty used to me by now. He usually stays perched in the tree and waits for me to click off many pictures and doesn't fly away anymore. He even whistled a bit at us the last time we came by him, as if to say hello.
They usually sit way high, on the highest tree possible in the places they like on the lake. One island in particular has a dead tree they like and the other favorite spot is a tall pine tree by one of our favorite fishing spots.
It is rare that we are quiet enough to catch him napping:
I don't know why, but on this day, we saw him with fuzzy feathers stuck on his beak and below his beak. Maybe he had a snack of another bird?:
Because, you know me.
I will be back.
