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!

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Northeast Creek Reservoir, Louisa, Virginia

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might …
