those are some rad pics micro.

the quabbin reservoir here in MA has a decent bald eagle population, last time i was there i was able to watch an eagle ****** a fish out of the water, drift over to shore and proceed to devour it's catch. pretty gnarly to see.

I'm seeing more and more Bald Eagles every year.  I saw two side by side sitting on a piling last year, with a third flying around them.  And the number of ospreys is on the rise, too.   This is a pic I took in November or December within 100 yards of where I photographed that eagle.

We must be doing a few things right.  When I was growing up I never saw a bald eagle.  Now I see them most every time I go fishing.

When I was a kid, alligators were in danger of being hunted out of existence.  At one time this morning there were four alligators around my boat.

I was raised on a farm, but never saw a deer until I was thirteen.  Today, they eat the hydrangeas in my front yard.

At lock and dam 13 on the mississippi river you can see hundreds of them in the winter. There are nests and everything. It is really cool to watch them fish, but they catch bigger walleye than i do. :'(

Very cool Micro.

RI has 1 pair of nesting Bald Eagles.  It was all over the news last year, they closed roads and everything just to protect them during their nesting period.  I'm sure the state is very curious to see if any chicks made it through to spring and if they are going to nest again.

Very cool.

If you have never seen an eagle in person its a must see. The best way to describe is like your in the movie Reign of Fire because they have a wingspan of a dragon its insane. My friend has a house upstate and the guy that lives closest to him is the local butcher. He'll cut up your dear, bear, pig w.e So he throws the scraps out on his front lawn and now there are 9 eagles living in the area. Its in Narrowsburg NY, they have Eagle Fest every year. Its a big thing up there where they celebrate the birds come back. They have several nesting pairs in NY state most of which reside in that area. They are an absolute stunning sight to see. Nothing like trying to chasing an eagle on a snowmobile.

We also saw one while fishing everything was great, weather, water temp there was bait everywhere but non of us(myself, my friend and his father) Could get a fish for the life of us. So we are about to call it quits when out of no where a giant bird comes diving down skims the water and comes out with what looked to be a good 4-5 pound fish. Talk about bitter sweet. Cool to see the bird but heart breaking to see him get a fish that ive been trying to catch for 5 hours in a span of 15 seconds. I've never even caught a fish above 3#'s. Then he takes it back to a tree and just looks at us like he was rubbing it in our face.  ;D ;D Great day, great animal.

Lat year at our club's last tournament I seen a bald eagle fly over the lake and disappear.  An hour before that we went into a cove and seen about 8 deer back in there wondering around.  

It was a very memorable day.

Great pics!!
