Eagle Watching

Yum


Bob and I drove to the Lake after we drove to Columbia to watch the California boys basketball team lose to the Moberly Spartans. We went to Bagnall Dam to watch the eagles along the Lake.



Here are a few pictures that I got that I am proud of! I wish I could say I had any talent (other than cropping!) for photography but really, its just how good the camera is!

  1. How beautiful and peaceful it looks there. It reminded me of the time we were up in the mountains on vacation and were wading in the middle of a shallow
    creek. All of a sudden there was a graceful flight over our heads. A bald eagle was following the creekbed. So neat!

    Thanks for bringing back that memory. I love your photos!

  2. Wonderful photos, Terri.

    I am trying to figure out where you were. I think I have it figured out. Perhaps we'll take a drive over, today or tomorrow, unless we get the Alberta Clipper or whatever it is the weather guys are saying. It's certainly cooler this morning, than it was yesterday!

  4. You are so lucky to see eagles so close to home.
    In the summer at the cottage we hear falcons but do not have eagles in Ontario, not that I know of anyway.If we do it will be a stray bird who just wandered off the beaten path. that's me too, and how I found you.
    Lovely site.

  6. Good Morning and Happy New Year! I found you on Pat's blog and just wanted to say hello. My mother lived in Buffalo, MO for many years - right on the Niangua River and so much of my life was spent visiting her there. Columbia, Lebanon, Bolivar, Osage Beach, the entire area is one of my favorites in the world. The people are "real" and the scenery is perfection.

    Makes me miss my summers at the lake even more today. The Eagles are beautiful, what a way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Happy New Year!

  11. Wow, I wish I could witness..your pictures will have to do for now. A few years ago I followed a live cam of a bald eagles nest..such beautiful creatures...lovely photos, even for an amateur :o)

    On my daily commute to Tampa for work, I cross a bridge where I get to see ospreys on the light poles eating their fresh fish catches & the pelicans always dive close to the bridge below for their catch & they love to just soar next to the road to catch the wind from the cars....it really makes you want to visit the beach more than go to work in the morning though!

  15. Hi Terri!

    I just wanted to pop in and wish you a Happy New Year. I also wanted to say that your craft closet has inspired me! I am now looking around for a closet that I could do something like that to.

    Now, if only I didn't have so much junk...!!

  17. I love the photos! We have Eagles that visit a nest near our home each winter! I love watching one of them hunt for food over the harbor in the morning! They are magnificent birds!
