Soaring with Eagles

 Soaring with Eagles



Standing on the river bank we soared with eagles…..or so it seemed watching this mighty bird of prey take flight.  A pair of bald eagles frequented an area along the Madison River a few miles from Yellowstone’s West Entrance and from April through September one or both rewarded us with their presence as we entered and exited the park, on  days of their choosing, of course.

Majestic, bold and powerful, the bald eagle is our most favorite wildlife subject.

Tender and committed, these pairs mate for life.

In early spring we witnessed this couple tend and fiercely protect their nest chasing away ravens and osprey.  Then one day, the stick cradle lay still and abandoned.  Did the nest fail? Or did a predator break through the eagles’ defense?  Only nature knows.
