Nice Day For Sitting Or Flying

Early this afternoon I spotted that distinctive white head peeking up out of a bunch of branches of a pine tree at the edge of the salt marsh.

The eagle was having a nice pleasant sit in the sun until he was called back to the nest site by the mate.

At this point he jumped off from the friendly confines of his soft resting space in the pine and flew by before heading across to the far west side of the marsh where the nest is located.

Also, as best as we can tell, the eagles once again have a pair of chicks in the nest for the second year in a row. Good news and we are delighted they decided to stay around the area to raise their young.

  1. Phil, I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am for your tireless efforts to capture our creatures of the Inlet! Your work, in and of itself, is a terrific study of the environment and its inhabitants. It’s a treasure trove! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    • Wow thanks a million Pamela, I’m thrilled that you enjoy seeing the wildlife that inhabits the inlet!
      I have some alligators from this morning that I think will be tomorrow’s post. 🙂

    • Awww thanks so much, I really am happy you like seeing stuff like this eagle. I was just about to leave today too because I already had some alligator shots that I intended to use but then I saw that white head… 🙂

  2. What a brilliant background for this awesome creature! Yet again, Phil, you have it spot on! Looking forward to having Thea with us again from 21st, to enjoy your brilliant pictures and her comments!
