Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement~ Bald Eagles Soaring

Kayaking in the Hudson Valley of New York can bring many surprises. The greatest thrill we experienced was bald eagles soaring above our heads. Holding the kayak steady to stare into their majestic eyes as they rested in trees was such a magical moment. One day we kayaked at Bashakill and saw a bald eagle nest with an immature eagle and the parents swooping in and out of the roost. The next day we headed to the Delaware River Gap and paddled eight miles downstream where we saw about twelve different eagles fishing and soaring on the wind. Luckily we got to see beavers, dams, herons, deer, amazing plant life and every color of dragonflies also. What a fabulous place to kayak.
