I think it is very interesting....


There are lots of eagles in Powell River. There used to be a nest tree along the seawalk, but after it was damaged during a strong winter wind it hasn't been reoccupied. We are in Tucson now starting the third and final segment of our Snowbird adventure. This time we will head to southern New Mexico and circle back through Flagstaff. It'll be a full four weeks. - Margy


lol, I envy you that you have a nest to watch. We have white tailed seaeagles where I live and I see them rather often. But never up close.


Can a blog post be considered delicious?!! This one definitely is!! Extraordinary.

Thanks for linking & sharing!

Seems like an awesome pre-shopping activity. Bonus that you got a little extra show.


I would definitely have enjoyed seeing that little drama in the tree tops, and am glad it turned out well. I have never gotten close enough to take photos of an eagle nest. You got some great photos Sallie, beautifully taken and your sky ones were pretty too. Happy April!


That must have really been fun to watch!

Such spectacular skies! I enjoyed your narrative, Sallie. They say “all’s well that ends well”. Glad each of the creatures lived to squabble another day. :)


Hello Sallie,
I always enjoy seeing the Eagles. I am glad their nest is doing well this year, the eaglets are looking great. Beautiful Eagle photos.
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.

I'd love to watch eagles.

Wow, twenty offspring!! If all or most survive, that's great for the eagle population. Beautiful photos.

Amy Franks

wow that was exciting reading the story, I'd love to know what happened, way to go Harriet!

Suzan Batz

This was so exciting to watch. Eagles are amazing and intelligent creatures. I love how they are permanent fixtures across from the store. Nature at its finest.

Rain Frances

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story with the visuals!!! You took some great shots!! ☺


I would not be advising you to get a life, Sallie, because you already have a good one, so pooh on those who would say otherwise. There's nothing more interesting than coming across the unexpected as you certainly did on this supermarket outing. Thanks for sharing the eagle drama in words and photos. I would have done the same.


Hello Sallie, :=) How I would love to have witnessed the mature Eagles, with their babies. Your action shots are fantastic. I probably,...no most definitely would have stayed there for a couple of hours at least. It's a privilege to watch these majestic birds.

Your sky shots are beautiful Sallie.
All the best.

Instead of saying, "Get a life", Sallie, I would be congratulating you on making the most of your wonderful life. If I had been accompanying you to the supermarket, I am afraid we might never have arrived there. What a great sequence to witness and share with all of us. Thank you!

How exciting to capture that excitement at the nest. That eagle mom shot is so nice. Your sky shots from home are so lovely. Yes, so much to be grateful for.


That was thrilling and well told! And we were all rewarded by that final photo at top!
Well done 👍🏽

Su-sieee! Mac

Stopping to watch the eagles is like stopping to smell the roses. How fun! Thanks for sharing your moment with the eagles, Sallie. Your photo of Harriet, wowza!

Wow, what an impressive eagle. Nice capture, Sallie.

What s picture, the Bold Eagle, I love it Sallie.


WOW!!!!!!!!!! "I DEFINITELY would have enjoyed seeing that." you would have not been able to tear me away, who needs food!!! all of your images are brilliant, even that action image, 2 wings and a tail fan, it's wonderful!!

i wonder if they have a web cam set up, they are so fun and a little distracting to watch on a web cam!! they are so majestic, i am so happy to view and read this even tho i have a life!! lol

Juliet (craftygreenpoet)

Wow! That would be an exciting thing to watch and your photos are brilliant!

Veronica Lee

I enjoyed reading your eagle adventure, Sallie.

Fantastic post and photos on the Eagles.

Happy Tuesday!


I had a great time reading your eagle adventure. It is nice that you have this eagle nest to watch when you go to the supermarket. All these pictures are beautiful.

Lorrie Orr

I would definitely have enjoyed seeing that interchange. Wild creatures interacting with other wild creatures always provides great entertainment.

William Kendall

Good shots!


It was like watching one of the soap operas on TV. I was spellbound wondering what was going to happen next andthought some dreadful drama was about to unfold.


It's always a good day when you get to see some really great bird action. They are so remarkable.

Iris Flavia

I´m sure you will find nobody in the first group!
This is exciting!!!! Wow! Thank you for sharing! Clever, brave birds, would I have loved to witness this!
In fact I´ve never seen an eagle for real here in Germany.
Very... wow!

Lavender Dreams

Oh my! That is pretty scary! But the mother was probably close enough to swoop in if needed. What a commotion. I've watched the webcam some. I bet those that chat about it were in an uproar! Always something exciting in nature! Glad you got such good photos to share! Enjoy your week and this fabulous weather!

I'm in the "I probably would have enjoyed seeing that" camp! Your photos and commentary are delightful. I am glad that all ended well.

Linda P

How exciting to see the eagles especially in action and follow the development of the young ones!


Hello Sallie,
Great post and photos on the Eagles. It is great to see the eaglets are doing well. Mama is proud. I would have enjoyed this sighting too. Take care, have a happy new week!


What a lovely commentary, with superb pictures. I really enjoyed this Blog🌞


Sallie - no question about it - I would have been one of the people who would have enjoyed watching E-20 step up! Thanks for sharing this terrific story with everyone at Mosaic Monday!


I'll be one to say "I would have enjoyed seeing that," Sallie! I'm glad the eaglets could defend themselves against the intruder.

Dina Johnston

What a great thing to see. I would have gone crazy as well. You caught the action well. That's something rare to see.

Lydia C. Lee

It so big!! Wow! #NaturesNotes
