I knew immediately, when I saw the theme for this weeks photo challenge, where my entry was coming from.
For the past 20 years, for a couple of weekends in January and February, chicken farmers in Sheffield Mills, Nova Scotia have been feeding the Eagles and providing an opportunity one would not normally get; a chance to observe (and photograph) large numbers of Bald Eagles and other birds of prey feeding in the wild (sort of). The local community has created a festival of sorts, called Eaglewatch, including pancake breakfasts and live entertainment in the community hall nearby.
Here are some of the photos I took in 2011 (click on them to see the larger version):
These great birds own the sky …
wing spans of 5 feet or more …
