We all have Klaus to thank for Skywatch Friday. He was a great photographer and friend to many. I've never met him but I really did enjoy his photos. Klaus's bird photos are some of the best I have ever seen. I have to say I am sure I am not the only one who will miss Klaus and his great photography. My deepest sympathy to Klaus's family and friends.
My sky included a juvenile eagle seen over my bird study site at the reservoir. It flew around the clear cut area in a circle, a very cool sight to watch.
It reminded me of the Steve Miller song Fly Like an Eagle. "I want to fly like an eagle, To the sea, Fly like an eagle, Let my Spirit carry me, I want to fly like an eagle, Till I'm Free, Oh, Lord through the revolution.
These shots are fuzzy since I cropped them for a closer look. On the juvenile eagle you can see the white underwing coverts.
Another regular bird seen and heard at my study site the Great Crested Flycatcher. I like its yellow belly. This bird was always in one of the trees next to the clear cut and was very vocal.
