Dark Day

I am still adjusting to the darker shorter days. Seems like the dark of night lasts so much longer. Could not find much wildlife activity yesterday. Another warmer day. Try again today…

Chilly Morning, Warm Afternoon In Western Kentucky

Chilly start to the day. Had this weird pink cast right before sunrise. Even had the river water tinted. Not a lot of eagle action close. A lot of eagles out and about but not feeding much. The one close eagle pick up I missed when the eagle swung back in the lock chamber entrance at Kentucky Dam. Never have seen one catch a fish there before. This just after sunrise and  that eagle had an odd color cast reflected on its wings as well. A few leftovers as well in this post today. Have a great sunday…

Improving Conditions

Conditions improved yesterday. Saw a bit of sunshine. It is turning colder but should be at this time of year. I need to get adjusted to being out in the cold again. Have observed many flocks of snow geese high and headed south the last couple days. Saw about 10 sandhill cranes as well yesterday. Love to hear both of those species as they head south. The snow geese sound like what I imagine a bunch of wild indians getting ready to go on the warpath would have sounded like. The sandhill calls almost undiscribable but magical to my ears.

There was enough light to photograph some small birds as well. The cardinals which always grace our back yard and the cedar waxwings that often share food with each other. Getting to see them as I was walking to and from the car at my lunch break was a blessing. Saw a lot of eagle action at the river. One time four juveniles chasing another juvenile with a fish. Watched five eagles catch fish. All of the eagle action to far to photograph. The gulls and heron were busy picking up fish as well. Maybe today I will be in the right position to catch the eagles feeding or giving chase to each other. Also saw the peregrine falcon dive bombing a juvenile eagle.  Caught the eagle pair in the pines at the Sheriff’s Ranch in mid-afternoon. All in all a slow action day but a pleasure to be out in….
