SWF>>>>Dawn to Dusk

I am linking up my post with  Skywatch Friday

This post starts with the sunrise from my deck, there were a little bit of clouds around that turned pink and the moon was setting. I am always up early and on this day 11/19  hubby and I planned a daytrip to the Susquehanna River to see the eagles. Migrating eagles usually stop at the river below the dam for a break. On this day we saw about 39 eagles, I am sure there were more eagles hidden  by the trees and rocks on the river.








I heard from my friend that the following weekend there were over 100 eagles seen at the same spot below the Conowingo Dam. Usually, the perfect time to see a lot of the eagles at this river is when it is really cold and the river is low.



A couple of eagles with a few Black Vultures.



A view of the Susquehanna River and the pretty sky.



Three eagles on the tower at the river



Back at home the view of the sunset from my mailbox and street.

I hope you can take some time to check out some more beautiful skies from around the world.

Also, thanks for stopping by to see my skies. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy weekend.

I have never even imagined seeing that many Eagles at once -- this is wonderful Eileen.

The picture of the three on the tower is amazing -- you couldn't have asked them to pose any better.

Wonderful images to see..

I have yet to see an eagle (though we apparently have some in this area).
Love the shot of him with his fish!

Valerie said...

Fabulous captures Eileen - thanks so much for sharing your images of these beautiful birds and glorious skies. (Judging by the vapour trails, there sure must be a lot of air traffic in your region!) Happy weekend.

Awesome Eileen!
Your skies are lovely but I'm really taken with the eagles. I like the one in the tree with his catch but I also like the one of the tower.
What a wonderful experience.

Hi Eileen, Your pictures are breathtakingly beautiful! Wow! I hope to see some Bald Eagles here at my new home - if not, I will hopefully see a few elsewhere or just virtually here. Have an excellent weekend! Again, bravo!
