Working the Wings

Sometimes you just have a feeling that you should be somewhere…so was the case on this morning in July.
Then when you realize that you had made the right choice is even more rewarding.

Watching a Peregrine (juvenile) do what they do at this age…which is stand on the edge of a structure and flap like crazy.
We refer to this as “Wingercising” or exercising the wings.

Eagle Encounters

It’s all about timing.
As the Eagle begin to collect prior to migration they become more approachable…which in turn provides some up enjoyable close encounters.

Side note…most will migrate but the odd Eagle will hang around and can even be seen in the dead of winter.
