An Eagle Sighting... My Valentine's Day Suprise

It is in the teens and blowing snow here at the lake.
 Not bird watching weather to say the least.
But here on Valentine's Day an full grown eagle came to visit our backyard.
  No we are not in some National Forest, but SW Indiana where
eagle sightings are rare.  This is our second visit by this eagle this winter.
The first time he never landed just circled the lake.

 This time he stayed for over an hour.
We think he lives very near here in the Patoka River Preserve.
It is less than five miles from our lake.
It really is amazing how beautiful they are.
This one is HUGE, wings have to be almost 6 ft across.
These pictures are taken from the house with my big lens on the camera.

We are lucky to have lots of wildlife out here to enjoy.
But this was definitely a treat to see on Valentine's Day.

Stay warm folks... it is horrible cold out there!

  1. What a wonderful treat on Valentine's Day! I am always thrilled when an eagle lands in the top of our pine tree. They are such majestic birds. May this be just the beginning of a great weekend!

  2. WOW- that is absolutely amazing, Brooke! What a treat, indeed.

    Yes, it is cold today and boy oh boy did we get a snowstorm earlier!

    Bet you did, too. We always get it right after Indy does!

    Happy St. Valentine's Day! ♥

  8. So fun and you got some great shots! We have Vultures that fly around in the large pines in a lot adjacent to our home. Not quite as exciting as an eagle. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
