Nice shots, Carol!

For me, it's still pretty exciting to look up and notice an eagle flying around. We never used to see them around here. It's becoming more and more common. The only bad thing is I worry for my cats.

Thanks Lori! It is always such a thrill to see them, and to be able to have my camera with me, was indeed a big bonus!

Indeed, kitties might become victims of these very large birds.

In my neighbourhood, 185 pound cats eat cats.

Got a stack of images of these turkeys a couple days back, so I'm trying to scatter them in different threads. K3 + 150~450.

Nice shots everyone! Here was a difficult one to shoot, a very black bird against the sky.

This is a "Common Crow". K3, Pentax 55-300 + Tamron 1.4X TC, handheld.

Here's what we refer to as a "Camp Robber", but is actually Clark's Nutcracker. Lewis & Clark saw this species on their journey into the West, and named it. Camp Robber name comes from how tame they are, actually coming down into camp & stealing food with individuals right there!

If it's a baldy, probably not a threat to your kitty as they much prefer fish, and being so big, would have a hard time nabbing a kitty unless it were out it a very open space.
