We enjoy driving along the Mississippi levee at this time of year to watch these beautiful birds nesting and perching high up in the tree tops or soaring in the sky. From this vantage point, they can keep their eyes on the river in search of fish and other prey.

Thanks, Julie! It is always fun to be able to watch them.
Beautiful family and nest! You and I have Eagles on our mind…. 🙂
Thanks, Donna. It’s a busy time of year for them. Can’t wait to see the young ones. 🙂
He will raise us up on eagle’s wings, bear us on the breath of dawn, make us to shine like the sun and hold us in the palm of His hand. Lovely images, Rebecca.
Well said! Thanks, Kathy!
Beautiful up-close shots of the eagles Rebecca. That is a great shot of the nest too – it’s amazing how large it is and just an assortment of twigs fashioned together to make up the nest. I like watching the web cams when there are eaglets and I marvel at the close-ups of the large nests.
Thanks, Linda! Their nests and nest building skills are amazing. There are a pair of eagles at Reelfoot Lake that lost their nest during the recent tornado and have been working to rebuild. It has been interesting to watch their persistence and dedication.
You almost feel like you wish you could help them re-build!
Wow! Wonderful ! Well shared thanks 😊👌❤
Thanks, Priti! They are always a joy to watch!
