Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Thanks, Peggy. Our new cam is Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV. It was recommended by other eagle photographers to us. Fast shutter, up to 600mm zoom, and I love the fact that it's lightweight.

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Thanks for your comment on my photos, Pascale. Nice to see Saucy; always great when one returns and you know they are still doing well, on their path to adulthood.

Philjo, thanks for the update on Bailey. She has a good home, well cared for by Audubon. Such a pretty girl.

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Thanks, Philjo. My husband estimates 60-70 feet away. I've been taking so many eagle photos lately, that it's hard to remember. The camera zooms out to 600mm.

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

My husband and I have been enjoying a new camera that we gifted each other for Christmas. To help fulfill my goal of learning "bird in flight" photography. Here are a few of a beauty launching into flight, taken at a nearby lake.

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Minna, thank you for your stories, and I look forward to your new poem. I cannot speak of of Feisty 14er without tears, either; or the other lost ones. Philjo, I think E9/14's sounds good.

Kathy's poem was amazing. I could picture it all in my mind.
