Another great end to a great day @ Blackwater NWR, MD

I was there from sunrise to sunset. An amazing day, one of my best in a while...

This was the sunrise
The 100 mile sunrise

There was a mature Bald Eagle perched along Wildlife Drive

Two Bald Eagles (1) @ Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, Maryland

I took my first ride out to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge this weekend. It was great. So many eagles, and other wildlife. Here are the first other posted shots I have.

My First Readable Band, V34! Banded Bald Eagle from NY @ Conowingo Dam, Maryland - December 2nd 2006


This was my first photo with a readable band!

A few others got photos of him(?) too and researched it, and he's from NY and was banded in 2002 as a chick (assuming I remember the story correctly). NY uses two bands: silver and blue I think...
