Deal of the Day


The Morning Gargle

Bald Eagle With Head Facing Up - Gargling

Bald Eagle Photos from, May 2005.
Before using our pictures, please review our usage policy.


Photograph Notes:  Over Memorial Day weekend, I discovered that our car actually made a nice blind as the eagle was pretty familiar with cars -- this meant that I could park about 40 yards from the pile that, almost every morning, an eagle would perch on for some time. The key is getting there before dawn so that they don't see you getting into the car. At any rate, this shot was captured just before sunrise (note the slightly pink sky). The eagle's neck was stretched vertically as it was calling to its mate.
