When I zoomed in, I recognized some Snow Geese, a male and a female. I was pretty excited to get these first photos Snow Geese.

Thursday started out with another Porcupine.

The next shots were taken on the way back to the trucks, about half a mile short. At the Sandy Beach we spotted a big bird on the top branches of a tree on our side of the Rio Grande. At first we thought it might be an Osprey, a pretty good sighting all by itself. On closer examination, I identified it as a juvenile Bald Eagle, probably three to four years old. We probably spotted this same one over a month ago across the river, but these are much better photos because of the proximity.

After a couple of minutes it took off to the north, and we spotted it landing in trees in an area we have named the Eagle Beach, and I got this shot over 600 yards out. While we were checking out the eagle we saw this Great Blue Heron fishing close by in a small, dried-up puddle. We got on the trail heading up to the eagle beach, and Rob spotted a couple of Red tails soaring with the thermals. They were very high up, but I still got some pretty good shots of each of them. I love the pattern on the underside of their wings.

We got to the Eagle Beach, and I got these two shots of the eagle in the tree on the other side of the river, probably at least 90 yards out.

I’m not sure when I got this shot of the Blue, but it is one of my best shots of a Great Blue in the air.
