American Bald Eagles

Published on August 20, 2014, by in Colorado.

American Bald Eagles can be found through out the US, including here in sw Colorado.  There is a pair living above Totten Reservoir near Cortez, Colorado, that I’ve been lucky enough to photograph a few times.

The first time I saw them, one was harassing a mob of mudhens on a cold, windy day in May.  It would make a lazy dive, hoping to catch a unsuspecting coot or other bird.  I don’t think it was a successful hunt that day.  I came back a few days later, and got some pics of the pair, lounging on a telephone pole.

I for one am happy the American Bald Eagle is one of our symbols of freedom here in America!
