Eagles at the Creek

On our trip to Pine Creek we were looking for Eagles and nests.
We did manage to find two of the three nests and we saw
our share of Eagles flying up the creek.

One was just sitting in a tree right by our cabin
We had just gotten home from looking for a nest and I
heard Barbi yell.... Eagle at the Creek.

We got comfy in some lawn chairs and just clicked away.
When it started to fly I couldn't take enough pictures.
So just scroll down and enjoy the Eagle in Flight.

What a thrill to see Eagles up close.

Super-Size it mom!

A trip to Pine Creek near Pennsylvania Grand Canyon
was a needed jane & barbi outing. It's so relaxing and
beautiful there.

Check out the blue sky

The tall mountains and the creek

Sitting by the creek and watching for what may come along

This Little Green Heron gave us a show

scratching his head

and flapping his wings

Looking across the creek at all the purple loosestrife
growing we also hear the 'shotgun' sounds of the Kingfisher

and saw him gliding above the water looking for his catch
of the day

He's a beauty

There were Great Blue Herons too

Standing stick straight as they always do

But the 'catch of the morning' so to speak was this King
bird who in mid air caught the biggest dragon fly

There was a a tree the storm had knocked down in the water
and he chose that site to wait

It didn't take long for baby 'King" to fly in

Mouth wide open...and mom tried to give him the
'super size' prize she has caught

If you click on the pictures you can see them in more
detail.... Now! Look at baby 'king' turn his head as if
to say.. "mom, that's too big"

Then mom has that OMG look on her face.. Kids!

They wanna eat but it has to be just the right size, maybe
I can break it in half on the branch..

Nope! no luck with that..

While baby 'king' cries she tries to figure it out

Getting tired of the game she decides to let
Jr. get his own breakfast

and..... she flies away and let him there keeping the
'super size' dragonfly for herself.

Stay tuned.... for the Eagle fun.. next post.
