Eagle sighting




Kayakin' Photography: 1. It takes a steady hand. 2. It ain't easy!!! 3. They do stare, eagles see everything & this one knew he was being watching. I am not sure he like it either. 4. You have to be very determined. 5. Are you cut out for kayakin' photography? 

An time I get to see an eagle in their natural habit I get really excited!! Don't you? Don't mind me I do get a bit teary eyed too. I truly can understand why bald eagles are considering the nation bird of the USA. They are just amazing birds. Does anyone know if they are on the endangered list any more? I keep hearing mixed thoughts? Some say their #'s are ok, other times I hear they are endangered in being in case of extinction. We got to see this eagle on our kayaking trip while at "Occoneechee State Park, Clarksville, VA". Here is a "eagle" we saw in Canada at the International boundary, check it out!!! Beth ( :

I'll be linking up to "Eileen's, Saturday's Critters". Come join us.

seeing these birds is an emotional event and I could never be a kayak photographer :-) I love how they observe their surroundings without budging but an eye.

So...noble!

I don't know if they are still endangered, but I think so. When my parents were living in Florida about ten years ago, there was an eagle nest on a tall trree in the field behind their home. If I remember correctly, that eagle habitat made it impossible for developers to build any new houses back there.

From the US Fish and Wildlife website...

"On August 9, 2007, the bald eagle was removed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species. After nearly disappearing from most of the United States decades ago, the bald eagle is now flourishing across the nation and no longer needs the protection of the Endangered Species Act."

I don't know if they are endangered, but I get so excited when I do see one...or more than one. We did not used to see any here, but now I see one every now and then.

How awesome! - You got some great shots. It is exciting to see them in the wild. In fact I just saw one this past weekend and actually got my very first photo of one (I'll share it later this week). Congrats on your eagle sightings. They are amazing birds.

I get quite excited when I see eagles and more so if I can get a shot of them if they are not too far away. Great shots!

Awesome! They're handsome birds.

The odd thing is that there is a magnificent nesting pair of eagles out side the window of my city place in the park below. I have been watching them soar for several years now.
I only just spotted one at my country place last week for the first time.

how exciting! when we lived in missouri there was an area by the river right down the road from our house...you could park there and count a bunch of eagles in the trees, every year! i think i have only seen 1 since moving away and i can't remember if it was here or in georgia!

Amazing photos of the eagle Beth. Yes, it would be tricky keeping the kayak still while trying to take a photo. Eagles are not endangered here in Canada now but they are a protected species. Beautiful creatures!
William Kendall said…
What an amazing bird, too!
Cheryl @ TFD said…
What an awesome bird...I love them, too. And great captures, Beth! I see more of them around our area and I think they are indeed making a comeback. Yay!
Take care, my friend, and have a good week!

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
