Riverbend Park Bald Eagles:
This past Tuesday morning, January 4, 2022, I again visited Riverbend Park, located along the Catawba River near Conover, NC, hoping to observe and photograph Bald Eagles.
I had a new 600 mm telephoto lens in tow for the first time!
As has been true during each previous visit to Riverbend Park, I was not disappointed!
I encountered at least one juvenile, and two adult Bald Eagles!
I photographed them from several hundred feet away, across the Catawba River, with my camera tripod-mounted.
I found the initial imaging results with my new lens quite encouraging!
Today, I’d like to share 8 photos of the two adult Bald Eagles, and one shot of a juvenile Bald Eagle.
I’ve also thrown in an image of a multitasking Great Blue Heron, simultaneously flying and sticking out its tongue!
Stay safe, and have a great day!
