They're Baaaaack

Although I wasn't expecting a visit, since I had the camera, how could I pass up a few dozen pix of them?






The immature squawks nearly every morning from about 5:30 on.  Several times over the past few weeks, I've heard the adults behind the treeline too.  The dry, sunny windy days we've been having has sure helped because I seem to catch them soaring quite a bit.
Personally I think they're trying to get the young one to move out but all it does is sit there and cry begging for a free meal when they're around.


Are you still seeing your favorite species?

Sharing with you and those at



Gosh, Winter is going to be dull without them if they don't stick around.

they don't stick around for the winter? ... i guess they prefer warm places? i guess they will show up in spring? they will return my friend, your feather friends will be back. ( :

You are so blessed to see these eagles right in your backyard! Yes, I'm missing the song sparrows and hummingbirds - both gone for weeks now. Thankful for chickadees and bluejays...and crows. :) Have a great day.

You are so lucky to have had your camera to take the pics..
Here where I am, there are a couple of hawks or kites..not sure.. they are not eagles.
You will miss them , when they fly to warmer weather.. Where would they fly too. !!!

That's great, I hope they stick around all winter.. We have some that spend the winter here. Great shots.

I can see why the adults are trying to get that young one to move out. They probably are tired of hearing it squawking so early in the morning..lol

I never know what I'll see in the morning when I get up. The migrants are moving through, so it changes day to day. This winter will be a whole new animal for me as I learn what birds and critters are around during the winter.

Lucky you! I'd take a gazillion shots of these magnificent birds as well. Great shots, JP!

Our robins will soon be packing up and heading for warmer climes........ I miss them til they show up again in March ... usually just in time for another great big snow storm! They might just start to show up later ...like May....to be sure they miss all the bad weather....

Wonderful!!!

What fun to see them again. That young one doesn't seem to want to move on. Today I saw some geese flying overhead, a huge flock and I happened to have the camera handy.
