The Eagles Have Landed

The other day, we noticed a dark "shape" on the south side of the neighbor's pasture; we assumed it was a dead deer. Friday afternoon when I drove by after work, the "shape" was being picked apart by a pair of Bald Eagles! They were back again Saturday at lunchtime, along with a few of their friends and an assortment of other birds of prey. Check out a few of the snaps Scott took from the property line with the telephoto lens:
It's too bad that it's so gloomy outside. The dark feathers against the dark tree background make the birds a little hard to see.
Scott saw a total of four eagles plus some other large birds we assume are turkey buzzards. These two are coming in for a landing near the carcass.

Even with the overcast sky, an eagle soaring overhead is an amazing sight.
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
