Blue Monday, Blue Sky and Bald Eagles

On Sunday morning, my hubby and I went for a walk along the Susquehanna River. It has a nice trail to walk along the river and enjoy the birds. There must have been hundreds of Great Blue Herons  standing on rocks in the river. And in the sky we watching juvenile Eagles chasing each other and some adults flying nearby. The sky and the river were both a pretty blue and the weather was perfect.

Not the best eagle photos, but my camera only goes so far.



It was fun watching the eagles chasing each other.
























I am linking my post to Sally's Blue Monday  stop by and visit the Blue Monday post.

  14. Very majestic - especially in flight Eileen! If I slipped into this place they'd have to pry me out! The previous one and your header is still incredible to me. Is that like a large patch of them? Generally you don't see quite that many together. My son plans on doing a pond with koi like his Aunty. I know why!! Love the pinks-(and the eagles, lol))

  20. Eileen, what an amazing place. You share the best walks with us!
    The Eagles are fabulous, but just to see hundreds of Blue Herons in one place would absolutely make my day! We used to walk by a Great Blue rookery when we lived in Oregon; it was always fun to check on the progress -- but I'd say that maybe 6 adults was the most we saw at once.

    Thanks for taking us along on your walk.
