    WOW Butterfly, What great photos!
    I have a friend, Doris Mager, known as "The Eagle Lady."
    She did raptor rescue for a most of her career.
    Now she travels the country giving talks to school children about these amazing birds. She has several birds that travel with her.
    Several years ago a golden eagle was hatched specifically for her to use in her talks. She also has a great horned owl and a crested cara cara, the mexican eagle. It is wonderful to educate the children about these magnificent creatures.
    Thanks for sharing these photos!
    Blessings, Spring :thumbup:

    I had the pleasure of seeing a baby Eagle up close and personal a couple of weeks ago. If I had my hand out the window I would have petted him. Or her. At first I thought it was a Red Tail or Red Wing but I sent this picture to my dad and he thinks its a baby Bald Eagle. They don't get their white until they are about 2. I couldn't believe his size. By the time I got my camera he was up in the tree. I was much closer. This is in Central Washington West of Yakima. It was an awesome animal spotting day. I got to see Long Horn Sheep, Elk, got stuck in a cattle drive but this Eagle was my favorite.

    We have a Wild Bird Sanctuary in Eureka,Mo not far from me that cares for injured birds and Eagles also. We have lots of eagles on the Great River Road and around Alton, IL, also not too far from us.

    We have huge Eukalyptus trees in our back yard and each year we have either a breeding pair of red-tailed hawks or great horned owls. This year the owls are back and every evening they are sitting in the trees having a hooty chat. I love to listen to them.

    USUALLY at least one of the babies makes an early departure and we have a verbal agreement with them. We make sure to get the baby back in the tree and they leave the cats alone. So far so good.

    The first year one of the young owls made it to the back door, it looked like a matress had exploded. I got to feed it raw chicken with chop sticks (we had stuck it in the cat carrier before we could take it to the raptor center). Feisty bugger - got a little too interested in me and jumped at me. (BABY with big tallons and a rather big beak) lol
