Nice! I have friends on Livingston that see them regularly at their place. You're right about the distance. Can you imagine trying to get them with 200 or 300mm?

My Sony equipment is limited to 400mm plus 1.4x converter. Even with 42mp body sometimes it's not enough even cropping.

They are generally near bodies of water in Texas since they tend to eat fish more than anything.

I drive by there a couple times a week, but never have spotted them. Wonder if they moved on?

Awesome, Awesome photography...

One flew by our RV while we were at my father's property in Kennard. It was flying low and it was an awesome thing to witness.

Matt, they are still spotted here and there but are rarely at the nest site after the young ones get out on their own.

Thanks for looking. They are majestic birds to see especially in flight.

Dad gum, Bill! Those are amazing photos. Perhaps National Geographic quality. You should send them a sample.

Thanks very much, Tracey. NatGeo is still above my pay grade. I appreciate your comments however.

Thanks guys.

KT, they aren't around the nest anymore until next nesting season which starts end of October or early November.

Visited Walker, MN this weekend and saw (lost count) 6 or 7 mature bald eagles.

I'm convinced the only reason they all came out was b/c I didn't have my camera with me!!! Was still tons of fun watching them fly around the lake.
