I have such an admiration for them. Even more so now that I've seen one in the wild. Images of them just don't do them justice. You have not seen an Eagle til you see them where they're meant to be.

We have a few Bald Eagles around here, and both Bald and Golden Eagles a little further south, in the Shawnee National Forest and down by the river, where they hang out around the bluffs.
The only ones I've ever seen up closs were at Busch Gardens in Tampa, where they were tethered to a perch while long lines of tourists passed by, taking pictures. I'm sure they were well-treated, but it was kind of sad, really.
They really don't look all that big when they're still. But with their 6-8 foot wing-span, it's a different story when they take flight.

I have a pair of resident hawks that nest somewhere in the nearby woods. We have a big high-line that runs through our property, and I often see one of them perching atop the power pole. Yesterday, I watched one circling the open fields between my woods and the next. The red hawk has a wing-span or 4-5 feet, which is pretty a impressive critter to have in your backyard.

I'm a big bird and critter watcher, as you can tell. I may be home-bound, but at least I'm in a nice spot.

It's funny to watch it turn around on the nest and it uses it's beak for leverage to nestle down onto the eggs.
