Bald Eagle Sighting

June 27, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I had never seen a Bald Eagle in the wild and I'm all about seeing animals thriving in their natural environment. We frequent our local lake, Lake Pleasant which is located in Arizona near North Phoenix.    It's pristine waters cover over 10,000 acres of water surface and 116 miles of shoreline.  They close off a large section of the lake between December 15-June 15 to allow the Bald Eagles to breed without being disrupted.  

Yesterday I saw a Bald Eagle in the WILD! I still can't get over it.  He/She flew out from near the water where he/she was hanging out with Turkey Vultures!  My friend yells EAGLE EAGLE.... Then what do my eyes see amongst the black vultures??   A WHITE TAIL!  

What a spectacular moment.  I felt small yet so full of life.  Moments like these are what make me feel fulfilled.

He/She flew out and perched up high on the mountain then took another flight above us.
