Bald Eagles On The Farm

Our national symbol, the American Bald Eagle is one serious bird. This beautiful bird has made a big comeback in our state in the last few years. I had the opportunity to get some really great pictures of this beautiful bird while out riding around on the farm. I spotted him setting on a stump just looking around. This was a big eagle. He sat close to a pond where there were a few ducks swimming around. I have seen eagles dive for ducks a few times and i am sure that is what he had on his mind.

He sat on a short stump for a while and then he decided to fly up to a taller dead tree. He sat there for a moment and flew off. I hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful bird. In the last picture a little bird tries chasing the eagle as he flies high above him.

After a short stay on the tall stump he decided he had seen enough of me so he took off.

Arkansas is a wintering and nesting area for the Bald Eagle.  I am so fortunate to see these big birds from time to time and it is becoming more a common site here on the farm.

A smaller bird decided it didn’t want the eagle around and decided to try to take him on by flying right above the big Eagle.  He was a brave little bird.
