Yesterday I shared with you the hummingbirds in my backyard; today I’ll share the eagles – okay, the eagle – that I saw last week before the weather went south.
It was one of those beautiful blue-sky days that we sometimes get in Seattle – clear, cold and sunny – so we went for a walk at Lincoln Park.
We walked through the woods on the bluff overlooking Puget Sound
and were welcomed by squirrels.
We continued down the trail through a tangle of trees
to the steep path down to the Sound below.
We arrived at the beach and were back in the sunshine where the best was yet to come –
for I looked up and saw a lone bald eagle perched majestically in the fir tree high above.
I was so happy to see him though I learned later later he might be missing a mate.
The Avian flu has arrived in Washington state, and one of the bald eagles at Lincoln Park was impacted. I believe it was taken in for care; I do hope it survives.
Wow! Great shots of the majestic bird. I do hope his mate will be OK.
Thank you so much! I hope so too!
So many very beautiful photos, Susanne! A beautiful park. ❤️
Thanks, John! It’s a wonderful park with resident bald eagles. 😊
Stunning photos Susanne! What a beautiful and majestic bird. Thank you for sharing your walk with us! I do hope he is reunited to his mate! Hugs, C
Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
What a great sight to see–I never tire of seeing eagles! Great shot, Susanne. We are at almost 2 feet of snow and single digits here today (1, LOL) but the sun is out! Merry Christmas to you all!
Thanks, Terri.😊 I love seeing the eagles, too! We’re freezing cold here this week but not into the single digits! Yikes! And only 2 inches of snow compared to your 2 feet!
Enjoy the sunshine and Merry Christmas to you and yours! 😊
Great photos! You really captured the piercing stare!!
Thanks for your comment! I’m always thrilled to see a bald eagle! 🙂
Lovely photos. Let’s hope for the best concerning the flu.
Thank you. Yes, I hope the mate survived.
Looks like a gorgeous day and the eagle the icing on the cake!
Yes, the calm before the storm! 🙂
Fingers crossed on the eagle. Haven’t seen ours since a mass of crows attacked im.
Yes I hope he survived. Sorry about your eagle. I’ve seen them chased by crows but not actually attacked. ☹
Great eagle-capture, Susanne. It must be a thrill to see one in the wild.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete. I never get tired of seeing them!
Eagles are such majestic-looking birds. We have one of those hidden cameras in the county focused on a mystery location where they nest.
I never tire of seeing them!
Stunning! That sky, too.
Thank you! It was a blue sky day!
Beautiful Eagle pictures!! I haven’t seen one in a couple years, we just don’t go to the Greenway much anymore.
I was happy to see him!
