We have hundreds of Bald Eagles nesting in our area this time of year. It is a good time to find them sitting atop something, looking for food for them and their eaglets in the nest.
Often they will sit above a flock of Snow Geese or flocks of ducks in the seasonal ponds or rivers.
Or they sit on the top of trees, bending the branches down with their weight, which can vary from 6 1/2 pounds up to 14 pounds, the females are the largest and heaviest.
They sit in the twiggy trees along the river dikes - just waiting and waiting - they are the most patient of birds.
The sight of a bent evergreen (when there is no eagle perched on it) is a sign that eagles use that tree for viewing their kingdom.

And once in a great while we see an eagle on the ground - we try not to get too close so it won't be frightened away.
