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.
A common Merganser pair preens while perched on a log.
A Red-Necked Grebe pair courting and strengthening their bond.
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.

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!
What a soothing way to pass the day and in such good company! 🙂
Beautiful post. When our perspective change, we get the chance to explore in new ways.
Cool picture of the grebes!
