It seems that there are an extraordinary number of eagles in the area this spring. They seem to be everywhere and on Saturday the 11th of February, my wife, Edward, and I went out with our cameras looking for eagles to photograph. It was a decent day and we saw a fair number of them, though not in the areas we expected, and did get a few photos.
We also saw a lot of Trumpeter Swan which winter in the fields here and were able to get some photos of them also. Managed, too, to get a few shots of a Red-tailed Hawk which was sitting on a fence, and we stopped at various other locations as well to get pictures of whatever took our fancy, old barns, a pond, some views of the area farmlands, etc.
