The Majestic Bald Eagle


On a recent trip to Bainbridge Island, Washington, we took a day trip up the Olympic Peninsula to Cape Flattery, the most Northwestern point  in the lower United States.  As we drove up the coast, we were amazed at the number of Bald Eagles that we saw.  In the wild, I had only seen them perched at the top of  a tree or soaring over a lake.  As I gazed out at the Strait of Juan de Fuca, I was surprised to see them at the edge of the water!


We counted 24 Bald Eagles on our short drive.  What an exciting day it was.



Bald Eagles are so majestic!

I am linking up to Outdoor Wednesday, at A Southern Daydreamer.  Take a minute and stop by.  It is fun to see where everybody has traveled!

  3. 24! That is sooo awesome. We saw one fly overhead as we were in a creek a few years ago. They are just so impressive. I can see why they are our National Bird. Great photo!

  8. Incredible photos! We usually Eagle watch on the Mississippi River during winter. This year there were very few this far south, due to the warm winter up north. They are amazing to watch.
