Dancing Eagles

Saturday brought some nice temperatures for spending time outside in the last days of November.

We have been gifted with seeing Bald Eagles using our vicinity as a feeding area for the last 17 years. Sightings are becoming more numerous and we have come to believe they may have set-up a nesting site not far away.

Friday morning I caught a single raptor sitting in a cottonwood after seeing two adults at tree top level on several occassions, as Hubby & me continue working on our Timber Life Lodge.

It never loses its AWE power when we see a creature God speaks of in his scripture. One of my favorties -

Isaiah 40:31. But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary: and they shall walk, and not faint....

We listened and watched for the sounds and sighting of the eagles that had shown themselves the last little while. First seeing one, then another,eventually we saw 2 adults and two immature younsters darting and circling together enjoying the warm thermals above.










The adult to the right, left the dance earlier than the others to seek new territory to enjoy while the daylight still allowed for exploration....

I've seen eagles on many different occasions, and it never gets old. So very cool.

Simply Outdoors - I must agree...it nevers gets old. They are huge when you watch them skimming along the ground looking for food. ;)

Awesome pics, CD. I'm still seeing a couple of them around here. Nothing consistent, though.

I am a fan of the Eagle for life. May have something to do with my heritage. I have been know as "Eagle Eyes" on my blog, and, never will I ever grow tired of watching this magnificent bird. Thanks for sharing.

Mel - Those birds have characteristics we have to admire.
I like your blog name...

Emily - That passage has given me new perspective on many occasions. Thanks!

Wandering Owl - Thanks! I would imagine you might get to see them more as shotgun deer season starts this weekend. They always come by to clean up the field dressings here.Maybe there too...;)
