Had lunch with a couple of my dear Friends yesterday in Maquoketa and on the way back I had to go by the Duck Pond. Found this guy and lots of his friends there as well.
There were two eagles at the pond as well. A mature and a juvenile. The mature eagle was circling the pond at a pretty high altitude. I couldn’t get a sharp image of him. The juvenile was sitting on top of a dead tree but for some reason the auto focus locked on the tree and not the bird. I have a lot of blurry shots of him.
I did get these two double-crested cormorants however.
I took the foot trail up to the blind to get a better angle on the eagle but he flew so I grabbed some close-ups of the pelicans. There was quite a large gathering of them at the pond!
Enjoy your day and be careful.
