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!

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend ...so I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
VERY SAD FACE. : (
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

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.

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  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
