Bald Eagles

I am linking up Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin.

Happy Memorial Day weekend.  God Bless and Thank You to our Veterans and soldiers!

These are some shots of the Bald Eagles hubby and I saw last weekend in Delaware. Most of the Eagles were seen at Bombay Hook NWR and one on a field as we were driving to the wildlife refuge.




We saw this juvie Bald Eagle land on this field, it captured something to eat twice as we watched from the side of the road.


This eagle was perched along the side of the wildlife drive in Bombay Hook NWR.


Also seen at Bombay Hook this Eagle was sitting on top of one of the mounds where we usually see ducks or geese sitting.


A cloudy gray evening, this Bald Eagle was perched on a dead tree limb in Bombay Hook NWR.



A few more critters we saw during our visit to the wildlife refuge.

I hope you enjoyed my critter post. I hope everyone has a happy weekend. Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments. To see more beautiful photos and cute critters

  18. I never get to see eagles here but there are reported to be some not that far away. I do see rabbits, even baby rabbits, and our dog seems to like to chase them. I am afraid he would eat them if he could. Lovely photos. Thank you for your comment and appearance at my blog.

  26. It must be very thrilling to be able to see so many bald eagles. Your picture of the eagle on the dead tree branch is absolutely majestic. Have a great weekend.

  27. Oh wonderful Bombay Hook...I am so glad you post often from this place; it must be wonderful to visit frequently.

    Our neighborhood fledgling eagles have flown away...the mom and dad are busy tidying the nest for next year...I'm told they'll soon head East too. (Maybe to Bombay Hook!)

  37. Hi Eileen. It must be wonderful to just head out and be fairly sure you are going to meet up with Bald Eagles and see them so well. Even better to be able to get such super close-ups. Have a great week ahead - Sunday pm here.
