Bald Eagle,Crow and Flicker

A gorgeous sunny day today - who can resist a ride in the country?  Birch Bay State Park is a great place to find Bald Eagles.
 Something is bugging me
 I tell you - there is trouble brewing
 Look out!
 Get away from me Crow!
 Now you have ruffled my feathers!

 Why did you do that, Crow?
 I wasn't bothering you - really I wasn't, and you chased me from one end of the park to the other.
 Go sit in your own tree, Crow.

 And out in the country - in the middle of the photo of a very old apple tree - look for the Flicker
 There is always something good to eat in the wood of an old tree.

 Just checking things out.

 Maybe a utility pole is a better deli for birds

Well that's the end folks - birds doing what birds do.

What a wonderful treat to see birds like this in their natural habitat, love the conversation going on between them especially the ruffled feather mosaic!
Happy Mosaic Monday.

Oh, what fun you must have had to see that eagle....and love the flicker, too.

The eagle pictures are quite timely because I am now carving an eagle neckerchief slide for a scout and wanted a good look at the beak, eyes and head.

Fabulous bird photos -- wow, those Eagle shots couldn't be more perfect. Isn't it funny how small birds torment the bigger ones.

A flicker built his nest at a friend's cabin by drilling through the outside wall for the second year in a row. They really are focused when they want to use a spot for a nest. - Margy
