From the water

On_the_water_1

A day spent paddling besides just being good clean fun allows you to see things from water level. Yes, these are birds we see from land, but while floating by in a kayak, seeing mergansers, red-necked grebes and bald eagles from the water provides us with a different perspective.

An ever watchful immature Bald Eagle perched along the shore. All sighted we can see from land but when seen from the water make them just a bit more special.

  1. Yes, it’s a different view from the water, and a pretty good one at that! Bald eagles seem to accept you and let you get that much closer if you’re on the water paddling and they’re in a tree. Nice shot of the juvenile!
