Eagles in the ‘Hood

There’s one good thing about the polar vortex. It brings a Convocation of Eagles. Please enjoy photos of our recent arrivals. The local residents are protesting with signs that say, “Private Property, NO Trespassing!!”

New Year Delights

This 2019 year has started off on the right birds for me. Featured image is an American Tree Sparrow in the freezing cold.

This lovely lady landed in front of me as I was driving to breakfast on New Years Day.
An hour later, my red-tailed hawk was hunting on the landfill.
Not to be left out, one of my totem birds, a great blue heron, was engaged on a local pond.
Of course, the mute swans were around, too.
A very few days later, my local traveling companion joined me at my park.
The red-shouldered hawk was not to be left out of the photos, even in the pouring rain.

My local resident female eagle and I communed for fifteen minutes. I left. She stayed.
And in a severe ice attack, our wintering eagles arrived. I am blessed today.
