Bald Eagle got In the Way .....

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Retief, May 4, 2007.

  1. Went to the Osprey nest today to see not only how the Osprey were doing but to see how the Goslings were. I saw the Goslings for the first time yesterday, was hoping to get as lucky this year and see them when they left the nest. Well, Jim got there a few minutes before I did, and he saw the same thing I did, an empty Canada Goose nest shocked;. Between yesterday at 5PM and today at 3:30PM, they all left the nest, this is a couple of days earlier than last year, they left on the 5th and 6th of May.

    Osprey wasn't doing much either, but then Jim noticed, YEAH JIM!!! :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:, this adult Bald Eagle flying about.

    Never caught them both with wings like that before.

    I just hate it when bald eagles get infront and steal the show from the ospreys! Nice shots Bill!
     
  6. Both of these are beauts!
     
  7. I knew it, when I don't go neat things happen. Congrats on a couple of beautiful shot Bill. Sorry that we all have missed the fly-down by the gooslings, that would have been pretty cool to have caught.
