Have You Seen a Bald Eagle Up Close?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart

How close have you ever been to a bald eagle in person, live?

About five years ago my wife and I visited for a week in Alaska a real estate client of mine, they lived right on the channel, or the bay I guess you would call it, but they were high up you could look down on the water. We would see fishing boats often coming and going.

 In the front of their home was a tall tree around forty-five feet tall, and our host pointed out to us the eagle’s nest at the top of the tree. The eagle would swoop down get a fish and sometimes drop part of a fish on the walk from the street to their porch.

 When we were in the back yard, we could see the eagle come over the roof of the house, curve around and as he spotted a fish he dove down and swooped it up and back to its nest. What an amazing experience we had for a week.

 The eagle was chosen because of its association with authority and statehood, in fact, the eagle had been used as a symbol of governmental power since Roman times.

I hope your day is as great as mine

We also saw the eagles when in Alaska, and they were just so beautiful.  Especially as they were flying over the water looking for a snack

We have seen quite a few bald eagles both when we lived in the east, and here in MT. My husband was in a rowboat fishing one day and one came down to grab a fish. We just saw one last week sitting on a fence pole near the road. They are beautiful birds.
