Eye to eye with a big bird

How do you read an eagle's expression?

A stern warning: "Don't try any funny business with me!"

Alert; "I see you there!"

Somewhat worried: "What are you up to?"

Interested: "I never saw a human so close before!"

On edge: "Is she planning to climb my rock, too?"

Resigned: "The price of fame. Have to put up with it, I guess."

On the other hand, they could have just been considering supper. Who am I to try to read the mind of an eagle?

White Rock beach, this afternoon. It's good to be home among the eagles again!


  1. beautiful photos of a gorgeous bird

  2. Beautiful photos! I find it endearing how scraggly these mostly-majestic birds can sometimes get; I live at a raptor rehab center, and our very old resident bald eagle is the most bedraggled-looking creature imaginable.

  3. He definitely shows his attitudes doesn't he? I love the inquiring one - with his head tilted like he really is questioning your presence.

    What he really is saying is 'where have you been, my friend?' and "Welcome home"!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
