Oh that beautiful bird!

I see an eagle every so often but never in mass.   My husband and son saw eagles every day on their fishing trip to Englefield Bay, British Columbia. I hope you enjoy these photos taken by our son.

The eagles sit in the trees and wait for the fishing boats to return.  When the fish are cleaned the show begins…

This has to be nature at it’s best.  I would have paid to see this show!  Oh that’s right, I did!

What we do for pictures like this and a freezer full of salmon…

  • Andrea - Seeing these pictures sure makes me miss home (born and raised in BC, but now living in Alberta). In veterinary school, I belonged to a wild bird club and we treated many Bald and Golden Eagles. When we had to catch them in their enclosure, for treatments, we had to wear a full face shield, protective clothing and massive leather gloves. Even protected like that, they were so frightening as they are huge, and their talons and beaks are incredibly powerful. Then imagine trying to collect a blood sample while having to hold one down….yikes! I’ll take a scratching/hissing cat over that any day! An incredible creature!ReplyCancel

    • Anne - It must have taken two people! I can’t even imagine being that close to one and trying to help it. What an experience that must have been.

      Hope you are loving your new home!ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Wonderful photos! (I think the experience of seeing them in person was worth every penny.)

  • Nancy C. in Utah - Wow Anne! Gorgeous photos. They are such majestic birds, I never get tired of seeing them on the rare occasion I catch a glimpse. When my hubby lived in Alaska, he got a lot of photos of bald eagles at the rescue site somewhere around Anchorage. There were always dozens of them there at any given time, but they only had a few permanent residents that sustained injuries that kept them from hunting for themselves. Otherwise they were rehabilitated and released. Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful shots. Hugs…ReplyCancel
