Could it be possible that I can find Bald Eagles closer to home away from Conowingo Dam? Well, with great thanks to fellow bird photographer and blogger Hugh Vandervoort with His Birding Photos secret intel was shared about a small group of bald eagles near Annapolis.
Heading out after dawn, I arrived with bald eagles and Hugh in sight. While the bald eagles were certainly the star attraction, spending a beautiful, but cold morning with fellow birding photographers was wonderful. Penny from our Feathered Friends meetup group, and an international Nature and Wildlife photographer Graeme Simpson of New Zealand. One of the most humble but successful photographers one can meet.
It was one of those mornings that one truly appreciates special friendships and sunny days.
It’ll be busy the next couple of weeks and I hope that you’re able to find some quiet time for yourself and enjoy those close to you.
You have the most amazing sights, I’m so envious 🙂
Now I’m sure you have glorious ones as well. And even more so in your countryside. Just get out there ! Oh wait..it’s probably zero degrees out there right now. 😉
So beautiful! I saw a sharp shin hawk for the first time today. Pretty cool, maneuvered in the sky like lightning.
Oh that is so awesome ! I always have a hard time ID’ing sharpies as they can confuse me. Congrats.
Wishing you all the magic of Christmas and a wonderful new year – may your turkey be hot and your drinks cold! xx
Thank you so much for such wonderful well wishes Joanne. Wishing your family and you a wonderful Christmas as well.
Thank you so much Emily – we’ll be in New York so it should be “interesting” if nothing else, lol! 🙂
Fabulous photos, Emily. You really do know where to find the best birds, but I’m learning too. 🙂 Enjoy the holidays. xx
Easier said than done right? ebird.org is an awesome resource if you’re looking for something specific. Or if you’re going somewhere, you can find out what is there first.
As I attempt to make it through and in and around nature, your photography helps me realize the grandeur and wonder of all of nature’s creatures.
You are learning as I head, through baptism of fire in nature. Indeed, the more you see, the more you are amazed with mother nature. Thank you and happy holidays!
Good you found them closer, and at the 450 Bridge no less. Nice images.
Ah…so you know about them then. Hope you have a chance to visit them also.
