Saturday's Critters #102

Saturday's Critters #102

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

I am sharing our visit to the Susquehanna River in Maryland to see the Bald Eagles. In November there can be hundreds of migrating eagles stopping at this spot at the river and Conowingo Dam. There can also be hundreds of people and photographers showing up to take photo of the Eagles.




Above one of the many juvenile Bald Eagles.



Perched on the dam three adult Bald Eagles and one juvenile.



How many eagles can you find in the photo above? To help out the count there are 4 eagles flying toward the rocks where the other eagles are perched. There are also some Black Vultures in the shot above.

I hope you enjoyed my eagles and photos. Thanks as always for visiting my post and for the nice comments. Have a happy day and safe weekend.

Oh WOW!!! I've never seen so many Eagles in one place before. Eagles are my favourite birds. So majestic. We have Wedge Tailed Eagles here in Tasmania. Don't see them very often though, I tend to see more Hawks out flying about. And seagulls, there's always seagulls...

Wow - fabulous photos - so many eagles. I think I counted 13 eagles - I really had to adjust the way I looked at the picture to get them into focus - I probably missed a lot too. Wonderful post!!!!

Jo said...

Hi Eileen, you're so blessed to see flocks of eagles! I think there are eight eagles in the last shot (I imagined two were immature - without white heads? ) I love the single bald eagle photo as well. Thanks for hosting this meme. Have a great weekend Jo

Jeevan said...

Wow! Excellent shot and collage on the eagles... the bald eagles remind me Brahminy Kite that has white upper body and brown winds tail.

Phil Slade said...

Brilliant pictures Eileen. I can only dream about seeing hundreds of Bald Eagles. I'm not surprised that the birders and photographers outnumbered the eagles. It must be a truly fabulous experience.

Thanks for the chance to join in today. Have a great weekend.

Christian Weiß said...

A great place, I can imagine that there are hundreds of people; I would be there too.

It's so amazing to see so many eagles now. I've been seeing a lot of turkeys lately too. Well, mainly just their roasted breasts.

Love those eagles! We have a Bald Eagles nesting near both our Florida and Illinois homes. Both nests are the first in their respective counties since use of DDT was outlawed in the US.

What a great place to see the eagles! I always get so excited when I spot one in the wild.

Those blue skies make the birds look even more magnificent.

..."E"... Beth Edwards said...

gorgeous hawk. love that close up beak. Happy weekend! ( :

Rose said...

If I was to see all those, I would feel like I had died and gone to heaven. I keep getting different numbers when I count the ones in the bottom photo....but I get over 20 every time I count. I am counting the young ones, too. there are some that I don't count because I can't tell if they are eagles or the other bird...are the others Black Vultures? anyway, loved seeing all of these.

Cath said...

great shots Eileen....love the close up of the juvenile :)

Eagles are fantastic birds. To know that you went to Maryland to capture them, says a lot about your passion.

Nick V. said...

Fantastic shots of these magnificent birds, Eileen! Enjoy your week and thanks for hosting.

Mildred said...

Good Sunday Morning, Eileen. Thank you for the anniv. wishes.
What a great opportunity to see the Eagles. The closeup of the juvenile is splendid. We watch the bald eagle pair at a nearby college campus (Berry). (online camera)

Awesome shot of the fishing eagles in action, Eileen.

Birds of prey get their unfair share of awesomeness.

We don't have that many eagles around Tampa Bay, but we get to see LOTS of osprey. ALMOST as gorgeous. ;O)

Celeste said...

You certainly have been capturing some great images of large groups of birds lately. So many eagles, you must have been thrilled to see that number. Thanks for sharing :)

Liz said...

That's a lot of Bald Eagles! I've never seen a juvenile before. I only saw the adults in Alaska.

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

Ana Freire said...

Impressive details from the eagle... and I loved all the other photos.
We don't see any, here... except one... which is the mascot of a football club, well known, called Benfica... ;-D
Great sequence of images!
All the best!
