So, this bird is majestic and absolutely amazing. I have to say though, I am a bit disappointed. This is one of the pair of eagles in captivity at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. It does not make her any less beautiful but, I was hoping to see her wild cousins that frequent the area.
We had heard that the wild eagles were in the area and seen other photographers images so, Joyce and I made the trip over yesterday. Well, it was a very short trip as the Nature Center is only 15 minutes or so from my house. Anyway, it was a beautiful day with the temperature around 72° so how could it be bad?
We met up with a fellow photographer who comes to the center all the time. He had seen one of the wild eagles just a short time before we met up with him. That one had gone off to hunt along the river and unfortunately, didn’t return while we were there. At least now I know where to look for them so, maybe we’ll get lucky next time!
