We ran to the dump this afternoon to get rid of some stuff. Saw these guys hanging around while waiting, or maybe they were waiting...LOL.

Lady we talked to said they sometimes have up to 30 bald eagles hanging around there, and they've seen one golden eagle. The other one I got pics of I is a hawk, just can't remember what kind she said it was, red something.

We were quite aways from this eagle, then I zoomed in on him.

The one above had a friend sitting with him, until it flew away.

I am very surprised. Someone said very few Bald eagles come this far north Is that true? I don't think so.

We have a healthy population of mating pairs in our area. They have been around since I was a kid, and that was not yesterday.

We just moved to St. Joes and I'm seeing the bald eagles on a regular basis. I lived out near Gros Cap for 9 years and didn't see any, just vultures and hawks.
Love the eagles, nice pictures!

Yes, very handsome they are. All we ever seen is maybe one or two, never more than that so it was quite something to see. Nice to know their population seems to be thriving too!

I have been in the bush lots and able to see Bald eagles on a few occasions. Usually they were moving to fast for me to snap a pic but they are definitely around.

I live by the dump I'll have to keep an eye out for those two. There are a few hawks in the area. I have a bird feeder out for other birds but none have stopped by to eat at all this winter :(
