Bald Eagles and Kids
Saturday, the kids and I headed out early to Lake Guntersville State Park to see a pair of bald eagles released back into the wild. The eagles had been found injured near Lake Guntersville and taken to the Raptor Center at Auburn where they were nursed back to health. Saturday, they were brought back here and released. They truly are magnificent birds, really huge.
We got to the park early and while riding around the top of the mountain came upon three deer grazing on the side of the road. They let us get close enough to get a couple of good pictures. The picture of the kids is at a waterfall just outside the park.
Since I was shooting the eagles on video for the TV station, I didn't get any good still pictures of them. If you would like to see pictures of the eagles, go to the website of my friend Brandon Pierce, http://www.piercephoto.net. He and John Chumley got some good close-ups.
