I saw a Bald Eagle at Weiss Lake in Alabama.  Pretty amazing siting and an amazing creature.  I have been told there are breeding pairs at a local lake here in Georgia but have not sited one here yet.
Former beekeeper until March....maybe next year...RIP

About every 2-3 years I get the opportunity to see them in my area.  4 today on a deer carcass about 40 yards off the road.  Very exciting to see such an incredible bird. 
They are incredible, aren't they? We see them ALL winter long around here, usually on deer carcasses or roosting in trees high above the river.

crows were attacking whatever these big things are that i have here.  it was kind of  fun to watch.

they are pesky.  i think that's where my barn kittens go.  when they get older, the coyotes get them.
Could they be red-tailed hawks? Crows harrass the crap out of our red tails around here.

Yes they are incredible!  I hope it never gets to be a "ho-hum" thing for me like it seems to be for some people.

I muat say that living in an area has hundreds of breeding pairs of bald eagles during the winter an at least a hundred pair during the spring and summer, that I have never tired of sighting the souring symbols.  We have at least 3 bald eagle nests on Fidalgo Island and many more throughout the rest of the San Juan Islands as well as scores up the Skagit River and the Mount Baker Wilderness area.
Each new sighting is a joy and ecstacy is locating another nest sight.
