A FAVORITE EAGLE PERCH

I often see a majestic pair of bald eagles sitting on two bare branches on the top of a tall poplar on the northeast side of Columbia Lake when I am canoeing.   

July 2,  2007

 

 

 


The picture above, with my canoe in the foreground,  was taken very near the eagles favorite perch, and looks southwest over Columbia Lake. 

They are quite used to me by now and, as I am no threat to them from the water, they just sit and observe me observing them.   
From my nearby vantage point they are an awe inspiring sight  with the Fairmont Mountains silhouetted behind them. 
 I feel that they will also warn me with their cackling voices should a  bear be approaching.

EAGLE  TAKES OFF OVER THE WETLANDS
July 27, 2007

 

NATURE  NOTES:

 Although nearly the same size and structure there are some interesting and significant differences between the bald and golden eagles, especially in their coloring, predatory habits and habitat. 
 Many cultures revere the eagle as one of the most important of their gods.
