Eagles, Ducks and Bluebirds...

After yesterday's rain I was out before the sun this morning...


First, I went to the location of a Bald Eagle nest.  If you look closely you can see one of the adult birds head peaking over the edge of the nest...


I watched as the eagles took turns sitting on the nest and looking for food...







After leaving the eagles I came upon a Bluebird that was perched on a road side fence post...


After snapping the first photo, it flew to the next fence post and more favorable light...



Next, it hopped to a bush before flying off...


Then I came upon this beautiful Wood Duck...


Just a short distance upstream I found these Common Mergansers...



These Cananda Geese are winging their way North to their nesting grounds...


Thanks for visiting.

  3. I really like the bluebird pictures, especially the last one in the bush, stunning! The bald eagle is beautiful and you are lucky to have found a nest; it's easier when you know they will have no choice but to stay around. Nice captures! Love the picture taken in the morning, beautiful light.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Louise, Canada, waiting for these Canada Geese...
