The Bald Eagles

Recently I have had the privilege of capturing numerous Bald Eagle photos, so it is time to share a few of them.

This one is either giving thanks for the food or not sure if he really wants to eat the road kill.

One deer carcass is hardly big enough for two Eagles to feed.
Take note of the open bill, indicating that 'words' are being exchanged.

A short scuffle gives me opportunity for some great pictures.
I would not want to be at the receiving end of those talons.

For a moment there seems to be a truce.

It's a great event to get outside and enjoy nature. I find it very exciting no matter how many times I see bald eagles. 

Don't be a pigeon if you were born to be an eagle.
Experience God's altitude for your life.

A brave Crow tried to drive the Eagle away from the food.It was interesting to watch.
In my mind that Crow wasn't too bright.The Eagle only allowed this to go so far and Mr.Crow had to leave.

Closing Thought:

Isaiah 40:31
 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.


  1. Isaiah 40:31 is one of my favorite passages. Eagles rise on thermals going round and round as we sometimes feel like we are. But each time around the circuit is a bit higher and closer to God! Aloha Sister <3

  2. OH MY HEART... I could have stood there and watched them FOREVER... Great set of pictures... Wonder if those were a male/female or two males...????? AND--of that 'not-so-smart'crow..... Not a good idea for him to tangle with an eagle....

    Most of the time I feel like a pigeon --even when I 'try' to be an eagle... ha


  3. the crow is kind of like one of us poking a bear with a stick... these are awe inspiring photos, they seem to be saying it is MINE! no, MINE! what a find what a treasure

  4. This is one of my favorite bible verses, and I had it printed on my mom's memorial service program. Wow, these bird tussles are like they are straight out of National Geographic! You sure were in the right place at the right time.

  5. These are great photos of the bald eagles, especially the ones of the 'squabble' over dinner. Do you have any more we can look forward to?

  6. What a wonderful opportunity. I need to seek a place to photograph eagles.

  7. Your eagle photos are outstanding, Ruth! I saw 2 crows following a fox that was carrying a recent kill. The fox kept turning around and giving them the evil eye, but they just kept stalking. I see most of your snow is gone.

  8. Wow! Fantastic shots of the eagle 'meet'!
    Poor crow must have been really hungry to dare to go near them!

  9. Fantastic pics of the eagles, Ruth! Each picture told a story and your clips under each picture told a fascinating, and sometimes quite humorous story of these beautiful, majestic birds! Thanks for sharing them! Love the Biblical passage too; it's one of my favorites!

  10. You have a way with your camera as well as words. Nicely done.

  11. they are just amazing, i am in awe. they are close by here...we have a few nests in town but i never get to see them. what a treat!!!

  12. Ruth, Oh Wow! What wonderful shots of these Eagles! That was a great opportunity! I would have been as thrilled as I know you were!

  13. Fantastic! Love the open beak shot.

  14. I, too, love seeing bald eagles. I must say, you seem to see them more often than I do. So I enjoy them vicariously through your photos.

  15. Oh I Love seeing bald eagles! You got Such great shots of their life. I looked and looked at my house when someone told me they saw and eagle near here lol. I never saw it though, but you are fortunate

  16. Isaiah 40:31 is one of my many favorite verses.
    Ruth, you captured some amazing shots of the eagles, I bet you were in awe to have such an opportunity to capture their movements.

  17. Great to get some good pics of the Eagles. Have a Happy Easter, Ruth.

  18. Oh Ruth, these are fabulous photos and you captioned them all so appropriately! I have only seen and eagle once and I didn't have my camera :(

  19. Wonderful pictures, Ruth. I keep looking for them, but so far have only seen one in the woods/valley by our home. Those a pretty breathtaking! and a I love that scripture verse.ll

    Have a Blessed Easter, Ruth!

  20. Onve again, Ruth, exceptional images!! The narration you added...great!

  21. Hi Ruth, This is just a great post with the eagles! Wow, that crow had some nerve! In the birding world it fascinates me how some birds treat each other. It seems like smaller birds often annoy the eagles like flying in circles around them. It amuses me because the eagles often don't pay any attention to the other birds. Great captions and closing thought! I want to wish you and yours a very Happy Easter. Best regards from Seattle! John
