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.
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 “stroll.”
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! 🙂
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. 🙂
Love that! Also, such natural beauty!
Thanks John! It was such a thrill to see so many bald eagles in one place!
Sounds like a splendid northwest kind of day.
Oh my word, the clouds in your photos are incredible! And how fun to see bald eagles too!
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! 🙂
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.
It was a surprise and a real treat!
