Saturday’s Critters #5

This is my first “Saturday’s Critters” post.  As you can tell from the blog title, I am joining the critter party a few weeks late.   My blogging friend, Eileen, began this weekly meme on Saturday, December 7th.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, January 1st, a Facebook friend posted that he had viewed several eagles just below Kinzua Dam.  Bob and I made a quick trip to Big Bend Recreation Area, just below Kinzua Dam, and saw at least six eagles.  That is the most eagles I have ever seen in one place.  It was a very exciting sighting for me!

The eagles were across the Allegheny River, not very close to our viewing platform.  I brought my 70-300 mm (EFL 140-600 mm) lens with me.  I took several pictures.  The photograph shown above turned out the best.  Even zoomed in the full capability of my lens, I still had to do heavy cropping of the image.  This is the very first time that I took a decent picture of an eagle in its natural habitat.
