Ryanne said...

So they just stood there and waited for you to take their close ups eh? It seems to me they like the paparazzi =)

Wow! What beautiful birds! And thanks for stopping by my blog to comment. Have a great day!

Hi Minky, those guys are posing nicely. I take it Donald either isn't photgenic or is shy. :-)
Happy WW, thank you for peeking in on my 'sleeping dog.'

Awesome birds... We occasionally see them near the lakes here, but they're not nearly so cooperative about smiling for the camera.
Neat shots!
Happy WW and thanks for stopping by!

Thank you all for stopping by. None of these birds is able to fly. They have all been permanently injured due to being hit by cars.

Columbia should be able to fly, but suffers from neurological damage due to ingesting lead.

Beautiful close-ups. We have lots of eagles down here in Florida, but don't get very close to them.

What were the eagles doing that the cars could hit them? I am glad they are being cared for, and sad that they can no longer fly free.
