Great pics. I was in Vancouver a few weeks ago and the place is crawling with eagles but they are a lot less common in Austin. Over the past few years the birds have been gradually reclaiming their former range in Texas. I was lucky enough to see one last year. If any of you kayak down the colorado from austin to Webberville there are a few birds that have been around.
I thought I saw one back in Dec. on LA but I wasn't sure. Well, now I guess I did see one out there. Also saw a bunch of wild turkeys that same day. One of the great things about being out on the water. Nice pics!
That's really awesome. I sell ranches all over the state for the last 8 years, see all kinds of wildlife, but never have seen an eagle in the wild-except for the one that nest easts of Llano along the river that you can see from the road.
Sweetness, nice photo skillz. I've seen a ton of ospreys lately, best occurence was of one dive bombing into LA less than 50 yards from me for a sunny, but nothing quite compares to a bald eagle IMO...
Cool!!! I used to see them all of the time around the Potomac River right by the DC/VA border. Then this huge development, the National Harbor, started going up right by a major nesting area... wonder what that's done to those birds... actually, that development pretty much ruined a MAJOR spawning/year-round area... supposedly they've closed off an area to fishing and removed several major wrecks that used to hold some serious fish... Progress.......!!!!
