Wild Bird Wednesday

 
 
Thursday is Independence Day in The United States and as we struggle with hard times and political grid lock, it is a time to grasp our patriotism and celebrate who we are , where we came from and engender some hope for where we are going.  Happy 4th of July to us(US) and everyone is invited to enjoy this day with us ...

In honor of the 4th, I have gone back to a trip I took to Washington State and a beautiful Eagle who flew across our bow.  We were out in search of whales which was not to be, but this big girl made my day ...

  1. That beautiful big girl would definitely make my day too!! I've only seen an eagle up close a couple of times, and gosh were they ever gorgeous!

    Pogo and I will be celebrating the 4th along with everyone else. I'm going to take him to see the fireworks - from a distance of course. This is the beginning of the twelth month that he has been with me. A darn good reason to enjoy the fireworks together!!!!!
    You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  2. Well, I'm jealous! I've never been able to photograph an adult Bald Eagle in the wild. They aren't that common in this part of the state yet. Nice shots and a great choice for Independence Day!

  11. Such wonderful shots you got of this majestic bird, and what wonderful words... to engender some hope for where we are going!!!! We all need to remember this. I am going to "grab" your lovely new badge and put it on my blog. So sorry that google reader is gone, and although I got feedly, I am having some anxiety about all of my blog friends disappearing and not being able to find them. Glad to see this button, and as always, thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blogpost. I am soooooooooooo relieved to be out of the job I had, and hope that i can get alot more time in to the IMPORTANT things in life again.

  15. I can see why you would like the eagle - patriotism or not, its a wonder bird!

    Our fairy wrens do not have a big voice - shame really.

    Just to make you jealous I saw some whales a couple of weekends ago - pictures soon!

    Thanks for the link (and the button!) to WBW.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  16. I love the eagle pictures. While they are coming back here, we have seen them fly like this up North & out West. Amazing.
    As a country, we need to get back to our core values & morals that we founded our country upon: In God We Trust.

  19. As our Independence Day weekend comes to an end, I found your post on WBW.

    Thank you.

    Wonderful bird, wonderful photographs and wonderful sentiment.

    I remember when the Eagle was in trouble across the nation and it's made a great come back.
    So can our Country.

    Take care.
