Not owls, but...

April 09, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

On my last trip out to find Snowy Owls, I didn’t see any, despite the rather excellent e-bird website showing some had been seen the day before. Still, I saw a different large flying predator – Bald Eagles!

Unlike the Snowy Owls, the Bald Eagles don’t conveniently perch on road side poles, so I ahd to do some careful walking to get close enough to get some shots. Still, there were quite a few out, and as you can see, I got behind one in a tree and managed to get a decent shot. Shortly after I left to go back to my car, the eagle was mobbed by crows and flew off. Hopefully, with the warm/cold snowy weather cycles we’ve been having this March that the Bald Eagles are finding enough to eat, as they are magnificent.
