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.
Seeing an eagle is such a highlight and your photos are amazing. Thank you for sharing your great talent.
Have a wonderful new week. xo

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!

The Loveless Cafe, Nashville, Tennessee

"Fried chicken and biscuits have been a part of Loveless Cafe’s history for more than sixty years. In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless began serving them out the front door of their home to travelers who passed by on US Highway 100, the then primary route between Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee." (for more info about the cafe "see here".

"The Loveless Cafe", (615)-646-9700, 8400 Hwy 100 Nashville, Tennessee. We are 40 feet from the tip of our F150 Ford pick up truck to the end of our Casita travel trailer ... so getting in there took some work, you can be long but side to side you better not be too wide ...they got it packed in there folks. There is a big back parking lot but still, Watch yourself!! The wait to get into the restaurant was like almost a 2 hour wait, Beth doesn't wait for food. HELL NO! We got it to go and it was quicker than you would have wait if you waited in the restaurant, just saying!! We got not sure of the proper name, it was chicke…

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

Cove Point Lighthouse
I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :
