WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.
On the morning of December 15, 2017 a little before 9:00 am I got a call from my niece, Shelby that there was a Bald Eagle sitting on a telephone pole right by her house. - She often calls me when birds like the Pelicans I've posted about before show up in her neck of the woods. I like that about her!
Anyway I hopped right in the car, still in my PJ'S and uncombed hair and drove up to her place hoping that the Eagle would still be there. It's a good 5-10 minute drive from my house to hers.
When I arrived it was still sitting on top of the pole. I took several shots of it. The day was very dreary and overcast so the quality isn't the greatest but I'm still thrilled with what I did capture.
While waiting around for it to move a bit I snapped a quick picture of the geese in the creek bed.
Suddenly I noticed that the Eagle was getting ready to take off from the pole and I manged this shot right as it lifted off.
Quickly trying to aim and focus I captured this "in-flight" shot which has been cropped to show off the bird better.
I'm happy with these photos and so glad that she called to tell me about the Eagle being there. - I hope you enjoy them as well.
Have a great day.
