High and far migrant raptors

Posted on Sep 16, 2014

Can you identify the migrants in the center of the cirrus? Take a look…a hard look…a really deep look…and you’ll find there are four black dots. This is not dust on your screen. In the very middle of this photo there is one bird to the upper right, two close together just under it to the left, and one further to the lower left. Those are Bald Eagles…yes, massive Bald Eagles. Perspective is everything. And hawk watching is not easy – imagine trying to find smaller birds like Sharp-shinned Hawks at that height!
