The Eagle Is Landing

November 19, 2011

On one of our trips to see the Piceance Creek/East Douglas wild horses this summer, I had the opportunity to observe some eagles that were nesting along the White River (thanks Mike). They were beautiful and fascinating – I took a ton of photographs of them. Here is just one series.

    Awesome, Pam! So many lovely images. Could you hear him yelling? We have a lot of hawks, ravens, vultures and owls here in AZ but I’ve yet to see an eagle. Would have to trek to their river haunts I believe.

    Amazing. Thank you!

  10. pnickoles Says:

    Thanks Katrine – stunning creatures. 🙂

    Thank you so much Sue.

    You know Kathleen, I don’t think I’ve seen an eagle when I’ve been to Arizona. Lots of other creatures I don’t see around here (like the Gila monster on the last trip – cool!), but I don’t remember seeing eagles.

    Thank you Celeste!
