Eagle Watching Days with Bald Eagle Release.

I'm planning to go but we will see if work gives me the weekend off. I thought I'd share the info and get more people out there too.

    Brit and I got there a little later than expected, so we had trouble getting a good shot and didn't actually meet anybody. Still gotta load up my pictures and see if I got anything good!

    All I can say was wow. Not much in the wild, but the release was spectacular. Got some magnificent photos from that and a couple from up at Wollersheim

    It was a great day though the eagles were naturally hard to photograph in the wild. The release was spectacular though. Hopefully everyone got to see these birds up close.

    Not much going on at the dam. I've seen only two eagles. You are not allowed to get out of your vehicle. People are leaving already.

    Gulls, lots of gulls running interference on the focus tracking. I just heard gunshots, now geese getting out of Dodge.

      I've got a 200mm lens. Not long enough to get a decent shot from the observation deck to the island with about 8 eagles on it in trees.

    You can't get out of the car at the dam. It's an eagle feeding area & people frighten the eagles. But I haven't seen any since I heard the gunshots. I'm outa here.

    Dang. Im half way there. You cant get out of the car at a public park? Thats not right.

    I'm leaving my house on the west side around 6:15. I plan on being setup near the dam at sunrise. Most likely I won't be hanging around until 12:30.

    not going with maria after all, so still looking for a ride... i'm on the east side, near olbrich gardens. i'm just as happy to arrive for the release vs early am. anyone?

    January 17, 2013

    I hope to get there in the morning as well, but now sure where I will be since I do not know for sure where the birds will be. That said, with many people going, we will likely not all find each other, but we make the best of it & it is nice to see what others got from different locations! It won't be too cold either so should make for more comfortable shooting conditions. I am not sure I will be able to stay for the eagle release, but if I am still in the area I will be there.

    The eagles are more active feeding early in the morning.
    I may get there very early to have breakfast and then take pictures

    December 28, 2012

  • Ryan E.

    Sounds like fun! I really hope there are eagles that are somewhat close for pics.
