Rain, Clouds, and Eagles

Saturday evening we took a walk at Coulon despite the threat of rain. I didn’t carry my camera – I’m always slowing my poor husband down on our walks – but I did have my phone.

The clouds were spectacular and of course I took a few pictures.

And then I saw the first eagle soaring overhead.

Then there were two.

And then as we stopped to watch the numbers kept increasing.

Three, four, five, six soaring overhead – sometimes swooping down to the lake – perhaps training the younger among them to fish. It was marvelous – the most bald eagles I have ever seen in one place – anywhere – anytime.

Later that night I walked down the street to catch a sunset through the clouds, yes, with my real camera.

Monday morning and it’s still raining.

  1. Beautiful pictures!! I envy your sighting of eagles, we rarely see more than one at a time in Yakima, and then only in the winter. Nice camera shot at the end. I, too, slow my partner down when we take a walk and I take my camera…she says that then we just β€œstroll.”

    • It’s not uncommon for us to see eagles over the lake, but usually only one or two at a time. This was so unusual and such a treat! πŸ™‚

  2. Great capture with those eagles, Susanne. We don’t have any eagles in Beetley, sadly.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Thanks Pete. I probably would have gotten better pictures if I had my ‘real’ camera with the good zoom on it. But it was such a thrill – and so unusual – to see so many at one time. πŸ™‚

    • Aw thanks so much. We’ve certainly had more than our share of clouds this month! And it was great seeing so many eagles at one time! πŸ™‚

  3. I have never seen that many bald eagles at once either. I get to see one or two at most since they nest near the river near us. I did see a lot of golden eagles together once in Colorado.
