    "Good Morning, Mr & Mrs Iggle!"

    I live in north central Florida, where it's still wild enough that animals and birds can live, and I cross a wildlife preserve area on the way in to work each day. There is a resident pair of eagles that can often be seen sunning themselves in the morning and keeping watch over...

    Someday I Will Climb That Mountain Again

    We used to hike to the top of this huge mountain to watch the eagles using binoculars.  However recently I visited Sevier County, Tennessee and the funpark there called Dollywood has an Americian Eagle refuge.  It was a lot easier to walk through that park than climb...

    The First Time: I Was Flying A Kite

    I just got a new parafoil and brought it with me for a trip to the country--big open spaces away from utility lines and very near the hang gliding capital of the world. She went up like a dream, higher than I could have imagined. She was a speck in the sky and I was straining to...

    And So Close to Home

      Early last summer I was coming back from a morning bike ride, when I noticed a large bird circling a tree no more than a hundred feet from the road.  I slowed down enough to see it was an eagle, then slowed some more and spotted the nest...

    Saw Tons of Them

    ...a couple times when I was a kid.  My parents took us to a spot where you usually see them on the Mississippi I think.  They were in migration for winter I believe, in nothern Missouri.  I was also lucky enough to notice them once or twice while hiking. ...

    We Have a Nest Just Up the Road From Us.....

    I'm not that crazy about them though. They go after the stray cats around here for food. Makes me quite angry. But even I have to admit that watching them gliding in the air is definitely a sight to see... But I still don't like 'em. Mahahahahah!

    Feathers Intact

    The First Time!

    I Live On the Chesapeake Bay

      Bald Eagles live all around the rivers and inlets off the Chesapeake Bay. I see an eagle at least once a week flying over my house. The Opsreys don't like them and attack them if they are alone.

    In Its Nest

    I used to live at the edge of one of the areas known for bald eagle nesting and migration. I've seen the nests, seen adults landing and taking off.  I think I may have seen a baby once...but I'm not sure.And I've seen them soaring...and wanted to join them!

    In Flight and It Was Cool

    I saw five one day when I went looking for them.  There where circling and more or less showing off.  It was very cool and I have never seen them in flight, just an injured bird at the zoo or something like that.
