Mid-Monthly Art: Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle

Another watercolor painting for mid-monthly art, this time of a Bald Eagle. I've seen lots of bald eagles in Alaska, a few in northrn California, and a couple - once or twice - in Nevada. On this Sibley page, you can find out more about them and listen to what they sound like.

Overheard in British Columbia, Canada, from an American tourist:

"What are the Canadians doing with all these American eagles?!"

Great painting, I love it!

Ha ha - that's funny. :D

I'm sure I must have seen some bald eagles in Canada on the road north, though I don't remember where offhand. I've never gone to one of those great bald eagle viewing areas like Haines at just the right time of year. There must be some places like that in Canada, too.

I've been to one in Brackendale, about an hour North of Vancouver. It was amazing - literally hundreds of eagles! Some volunteers had set up telescopes for everyone to use, and were telling visitors all about the birds.

But we see them year-round in the city, too! Our 15th floor lunch room is a good viewing platform... if you don't mind seeing the occasional pigeon being disembowelled while you're having lunch.

It's neat that you can often watch eagles at lunchtime! And I'm glad to hear there's a good viewing area so close to town. I thought those might be much farther north, like Prince Rupert, etc.
