WR bald eagle


This photo is not too clear — but it is a Bald Eagle, perched in the tree across the road from where my good friend, www.xanga.com/libreriaelfaro has her Spanish Christian book store.  I am sorry this isn’t clearer, but it was so exciting to get a call from Eldest Daughter, begging me to “come and see!” 


And this was the best picture that I could produce, but I think it is pretty evident that it is, in fact, a Bald Eagle.  According to the authorities, Delaware’s Bald Eagle population has been enjoying a comeback, but I don’t know that we will ever get immune to the sight of one of these majestic birds sailing through our skies unannounced. 


 It just does something for my heart that a turkey buzzard does not!

  1. wow, beautiful.  ๐Ÿ™‚  i agree in that they do make my heart “gasp” with wonder in a way that no other bird ever quite does (certainly not buzzards)  thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great picture! I know the feeling, we have an increased population of these magnificent birds but I’ve yet to get a picture as striking as this one. I agree buzzards just are not very charming!

  3. I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever seen one in the sky. Now buzzards – those I’ve seen. Great picture – no apology needed.

  4. Mary, yesterday I saw what I thought was a bald eagle way, way out in the field.  I even took the time to go get Mark’s deer bonaculars and check it out.  I still didn’t a very clear look and  told myself, ” I bet it was just on ole buzzard and I’m getting all excited over nothing.”   Now I really wonder if it was one of those amazing Eagles.

  5. Yeah, I am so over buzzards….I used to think they were kind of interesting when I was growing up, but now they are just an ugly bird…..a bald eagle, on the other hand, now that is note worthy…..thanks for sharing!

  6. We seem them rather regularly but it never fails to amaze us. I think we have a pair around here…..somewhere in our woods maybe..we see them in the field all the time….so beautiful and majestic looking. ~Erica

  7. Amazing, thanks for sharing the picture, it did turn out well
    By the way, I would have to agree buzzards, don’t do anything for me either..
    that reminds me of a story that Sean told me once he was out mowing
    and he saw an immature bald eagle (which he didnt know at the time, but looked it up later on the net)

  8. lol…we have been having the turkey buzzards flying over our little town lately….=O  not sure what they’re after??  And then the other day my youngest son found an injured hawk.  When I went to get a picture of him later, he had dissapeared.  But you’re right, the grandest of all is the Bald Eagle….I would be soo delighted too, to get a picture of one.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours~
    ps hows the aliments coming along, feeling better?  and the little train still sitting cozy?? =)

  9. Yeah they are grand… but then when you see one digging in your composter looking for ‘todays special’ that you just buried in there… then you realize that they are just another large bird looking for food.  But they are better looking than a buzzard… we have several that have taken up residence around here at least 3 or so and a couple of red-tailed hawks.

  10. Actually we have a bald eagle that eats our dead chickens we toss out the doors before we get ’em to the compost pile.  And it’s kinda scary how big they are when you see them eating meat.  Very impressive animals but really caught me off guard the first time I saw it.  Now if they would just drop a feather or two for my beadwork….:D
