Eagle Landing

An accommodating friend transported me to Eagle Country at Grand Rapids, Ohio, last month. GR Eagles have nested and frequented the little quaint village along the Maumee River and former site of a portion of the Maumee and Erie Canal consistently for years.

One resident (ABOVE and BELOW) obligingly landed on the bare branches of an island tree close enough for my tiny lenses to photograph. I snapped a number of pictures from quite a distance, as he never did incline himself to soar off, and he was still roosted when we had to leave.

As luck would have it, a Red-bellied Woodpecker (BELOW) also stopped to stare on the old canal trail, and held on long enough for me to snap a shot.

Isn’t he a fine fellow?

A good time was had by all !
