The following short video is from a trip passing
through Fulton, Illinois, along the Mississippi River
a few days ago. The weather was great and although
we have passed this Wind Mill many times,
decided to stop. Lucky we did, 'cause if you look
and listen, you will see/hear 2 Bald Eagles.

As always,
Thanks 4 stopping by!

Nice clip. The wind mill reminds me of that old Disney movie "Moon Spinners".

Coffee Messiah said...

liza: Thanks.

willow: Don't seem to remember that one.

kimy: That's the first time that has happened. It's such a small camera, I was surprised the birds showed up.

never get tired of the mississippi--it is freakin' huge! It is a force not unlike the great lakes or an ocean. And is that really what an eagle sounds like? Great!

Merle Sneed said...

CM, thanks for the great vid.

The windmill is a beautiful structure.

I have never seen the Mississippi (though I can sing the song -- I. salt. salt. I. salt. salt. I. pepper. pepper...) Now, I feel like I have.

What the heck is that blue ball?

Hi CM,

Speaking about eagles, Coffee, the American eagle is about to devour some more of Afghanistan!

It's interesting - I just put up a post that features an eagle. Great minds think alike, eh?

Hope you are handling the disappointments that Obama brings.

Take care, my friend.

Coffee Messiah said...

candie: Thanks.

tom: It's a beautiful river, to be sure and would like to take a paddle wheel down it one day ; ) Yes, that's a bald eagle call ; )

merle: They brought it in in 2000 from the Netherlands.

emerging: Funny that blue circle: The sun was setting and guess the camera does that, although it was a surprise for me to see too.

dd: Hello and Thanks for taking a look.

e: Thanks and hope all is well with you too.

david: Yes, the ongoing, non stop,funding of wars with nowhere for the $$$$ to come from is a major disappointment. Not to mention all the innocents sent from here and the ones there that will die for all this. Very little is changing it appears ; (

"Gutter Politics". Mmm. That would be My affiliation/party.

This is a wonderful post, CM -- there are several redtailed hawks here, btw, all roosting or not, as they will, in the tops of the wateroaks and maples at my home.

So enjoying this blog more and more as the days roll along, singing a song, side by side.
Thanks for your visit, too. Always cheering to see a friend!
Take care as the countdown to the Big Kahuna continues.

Yes, eagles are magnificent-- although they are a common sight in my back along 'my' cliff-- they perch in the trees and soar by-- and once this summer I found a young one perched on a big pot on my back deck looking at the big koi in my pond-- I still run to the window and peer out when they appear.

I loved your video. So peaceful to see the eagles gently soaring. Wierd how the sun came out-very mysterious looking!

Coffee Messiah said...

sarah: These little cameras are fun, and was surprised, since I usually never shoot right into the sun.
Thanks for stopping by!
