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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.
