An Eagle Sighting

I know, I know..this is my second post today but I just had to share this. I saw an eagle this morning! Buddy told me he's seen him before and then a friend from church said she's spotted it the last four years but I got to see it for myself! It was awesome! I had to turn around and go back to the house (about 2 minutes away) and get my camera. I do not have one of those up-close-and-personal lens so I magnified the best I could. No, this is not one of those ugly buzzards...this was a true eagle..absolutely magnificent!!!

Maybe if you click on the picture once I have it posted, it might come up bigger and better. This was a highlight in my year!

Happy Trails...


  1. That's better than the hawk, eh? Mike knows more about this guy. All I know is his name is Smokey, and he's buying the place next door to rent out. I guess he has pigs or something. I didn't ask! Strange, huh? Merry Christmas!

  2. Did the hawk call his friend the eagle? Count the chickens.

  3. So beautiful! Driving to see my horse, I often see hawks sitting in the bare trees along the freeway. The other day I counted nearly 5 of them in 40 minutes!

  4. Oh wow! Oh wow! I would have forgotten to breathe! What a thrill!

    I'm so happy for you!

    Merry Christmas! What a gift!


  5. Congrats Berte. We see many eagles all winter because we live along the Illinois River and there is a very healthy eagle population. But I never get over the excitement of seeing them.

  6. When we lived in Alaska, I never grew tired of seeing the Eagles! They are magnificent! I miss seeing them, and am envious that you have!!

  8. Wow, what a majestic sight to see! We have lots of hawks around here but I have never seen an eagle except in a zoo.
