If you have a Yorkie, he may have been waiting for you to let the dog out to poop.

I had been seeing them often this year. The other day I saw a pair of them in a freshly cut bean field.

I always wonder how many people don't notice things like that.

Last week I observed a small songbird (I could not identify) sitting on a branch very closely to a doe. It was very close (like 1 foot away) to the deer which caught my eye. I watched the bird for a minute or so. At first I saw landing on the deer's back, as I continued to watch, I saw the bird fly right on to the birds nose and pick off bugs. It would fly back to the nearby branch after every time it picked a bug off. The deer seemed to be unfazed. I watched the bird fly right at the eyes a pick off some more bugs off the deer's eyelashes. I can't believe the deer didn't rear back at least once. Pretty neat.

I've never seen a wild eagle and I am kind of jealous. I'd really like to see one.

The numbers of eagles has greatly increased in recent years. At least in central and northern PA.

Some good places to see them:

There is a nest at the Lamar fish hatchery.

There is a nest at Fishermans Paradise, on the ridge above the hatchery.

There are a couple of nests in the Pine Creek valley and it is common to see them flying there.

I see Eagles a lot down here. I also see them when I'm in MD and I've seen them in Pocono a few times while brook trout fishing. I always get the same excited feeling whenever I happen to see one.

I've found eagle feathers while trout fishing this year but never picked them up. It's still a crime to have them in possesion. So I just leave the feathers be. I hate that law but you never know if your going to be checked on the way out of the woods and if you might be searched.

A friend and I were headed in to town and saw one in a field near a busy intersection. I quickly pulled over and we jumped out to take pictures. Others noticed what we were doing and they stopped. The intersection came to a stand still as people began to pull over and get out of their vehicles. The bald eagle was quite a sight to see but what really struck me were the people who stopped. People were talking to complete strangers...all smiles, forgetting about their hurried drive home...One of those America moments you don't see to often anymore!

Merica!

If it was a Dashshund...the animal breed to hunt honey badger (al a they don't give a sh*t) the eagle would not have been perched in the tree...and proceeded directly to a freshly cut bean field. Beans offer lots of protien, too!

I'm seeing many more in SCPA in recent years including in areas with only small creeks, like right here in Gettysburg. Up on the Susky and Juniata, they're something you pretty much expect to see every time you're out these days.
It's still a thrill.

This is the first year I have seen them in Bucks County. Once near Washington's Crossing and once at Core Creek. Pretty cool IMO.

In the early 80s there was 3 nesting pairs of eagles in Pennsylvania. In July of this year the PA Game Commission stated that there are now 252 known nesting pairs of eagles in PA. The return of the eagle has been a great success story for the game commission who started a restoration program in 1983.
