Eagles Everywhere!!

I don't know if I will ever get used to this sight! I find myself amazed everytime I see an eagle fly by. We have a HUGE nest in the back of our field, so we have 3 regulars that fly over the farm on a daily basis. Well, this last week, we had a real treat!
Did you know that eagles REALLY like COW MANURE??!! Yes, it is true! It is POOH spreading time in the great northwest...and the eagles are going crazy! We have counted 37 eagles in one field so far. Unfortunately, my camera isn't good enough to capture them all...but here are some fun shots I was able to take. You will have a few "Where's Waldo" moments...Good luck!!

This one flew right over my head! It is my favorite...


23 in this shot...but hard to see them all...
Up, UP and AWAY!!

Gotta know, why do eagles like cow poo so much?

Jimi - That is so cool! We go to Eagle Fest each Feb. and are lucky to spot one! Thanks so much for posting these pics!

We compost in the manure...which makes the eagles VERY happy...they pick out all the GOODIES from the POOH!
Who would have thought??!!
