One Early Afternoon

I saw a pair of eagles flying at probably about 500 or more feet they were beautiful against the blue skies.

I went inside to get my binoculars and by the time I found them and returned, they had come down to just above tree top diagonally across the street and they each took to trees side by side and landed.

I watched through the binoculars for about 5 minutes

Suddenly they lifted out of the trees and a third Bald Eagle joined them .

I stood there in awe as the three eagles flew 30 feet above my head and then out of sight

Awwwwwwwww thanks SCW.............(((blush)))... smiles

I have only seen the mating on a nature program.<br />
There is a eagle cam on this site<br />
This is a t.v. station in out area.<br />
It is a live camera looking at a nest and there are 3 chicks that recently hatched.......'tis cool......smiles

I'm so lucky to see these beautiful creatures often. I call the father of the brood in my tree Rod Stewart because his hair looks the same. He came into my neighbours yard to fight the crows for some rodent carcass of some sort not too long ago and I'm pretty sure if I were to have stood next to him, he'd have come up to near waist! (Of course, I'm only barely over 5 feet. hehe.) <br />
They're wonderful. Have you seen them mate? It's intense!!!

There are buzzards and vultures all the time in the area.<br />
They clean up.<br />
<br />
We also get to see many Great Blue Herons and Egrets and Ospreys

The place I used to live last had a very huge tree and it was pretty high too there was an eagle nest there and there used to be eagles all round. I even once saw a pidgeon being attacked by eagle, gladly the fellow escaped but his head was ruined, i put a bandage to it! :)<br />

But eagles are magnificent creatures, I wish I could see vultures someday!

Hi OC.......... yes it is really special.......I couldn't believe it when 3 of them flew over so close to the ground and right over me

I always enjoy watching birds soar and ride thermals. Seeing an eagle would be really special.

smiles........... absolutely!!!
