I’ve seen a few convocations over the last few weeks. Convocations of eagles that is. I love the different names for groups of animals. Actually, I’m not sure how many individuals are needed to be considered a group, but I’m going to go with more than two. Correct me if I’m wrong. But anyways, I’ve seen lots of bald eagles lately: soaring, feeding off the many dead deer on the side of the roads, and even hanging out at their nests. I’ve also seen a number of immatures, which are usually hanging out near the adults. Here’s one eagle (that was apart of a convocation) I came across the other day.
This was actually on the side of the road, and I was surprised that the eagle stayed perched fairly low to the ground after we pulled off to the side. I was able to take some of the best photos of eagles that I’ve ever taken. But after a little while, the eagle moved higher up to a broken white pine while kicking an immature (top right corner of photo) out in the process.
Now I just can’t wait to see a golden eagle. I will be more than happy to see just one.
