Mosaic Monday - Bald Eagles

This year has not been as good for seeing Bald Eagles as some years - but then it has been better for seeing the Swans.  Each year has its rhythm.
 Building a nest - the eagle was gathering bits of twigs and moss from the tree 


 He could really get around in the midst of all those branches


Both Eagles in the nest.  Sometimes one was in the nest and one in the tree next to the nesting tree.

such fabulous and amazing series of eagle photos! If I ever saw a scene like this, I'd think that I had died and gone to heaven.

It is wonderful to watch the eagles on the nest.. And also cool to see the nest when the eggs are hatched. Great images and mosaics. Happy March, wishing you a great day and week ahead!

What amazing photos. We see eagles here but they are rare and exciting to spot. Usually it's impossible to get a good photo too. I feel better today....finally! I hope you feel good too! Sweet hugs my friend, Diane

Birds of prey really do build the most amazing nests don't they! xx

They really are the most majestic bird aren't they? I remember how excited we were the first time we saw one.

I think the eagles are starting to come back and nest now. We're seeing more of them than we had for a while.

Hello again :) I so enjoyed your last post that I had to take a peek at your other posts.

My young son is sitting next to me right now and he loved seeing your photos. We see Bald and Golden Eagles quite often here, but not this close - thank you so much for sharing :) I am happy to be following along. Hugs! Stephanie - The Enchanting Rose

Wow- awesome photos. I've only seen an eagle "close up" once. He glared down at me while I quickly snapped as many shots as I could with a long lens... he did not appear to be impressed. I was worried he might try to carry me away... Thanks for sharing these amazing photos with us.

I would love to see your pictures from a good year if you say this one is not as good. These are wonderful documentation of something most of us never see. You are lucky to be part of their rythym.

Awesome photos JoAnn. I have to wonder why the bald eagle has white feathers on its head? Did you get the footprint in the snow correct that Mary Cromer quizzed us with?
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Fascinating birds and so awesome looking. You're lucky to have them.

Nora said...

Wonderful shots of the eagles and the nest. How lucky you are to get such good photos of these amazing birds.

Not a good year for seeing Eagles here in Iowa, either. Too much ice on the River means bad fishing - so fewer Eagles. In fact, I haven't even tried to take any pictures. Too cold and too few of them. Great photos.
