Year 'Round Resident?

9:30 This Morning

This mature Bald Eagle posed patiently for Dallas and I this morning on the dead tree perch at the east end of the Stanfield Marsh and I saw a juvenile perched in the same place just over a week ago.

Bald Eagles are usually just winter visitors here and I'm wondering if we might possibly be getting some year 'round residents.
An un-Photoshopped version of this photo was given to a local US Forest Service biologist for inclusion in the Bald Eagle slide presentation she shares with visiting youth groups.

Very cool. They are increasing in this area and perhaps, as the numbers grow they will stay on.

I hope that doesn't mean fewer for us up here - Bald Eagles are our summertime visitors.

Nice to see you out blogging again, Jim!

The costs of war are high. This bird is impayable. Pleasant to know, that there's still a place to hide.
