Eagle Sighting
 
Saw a huge eagle today on I49 about 50 miles south of Shreveport around mile marker 150 on the south bound side. He was eating a dead animal on the side of the road. I have seen them in Toledo Bend and saw one off of the Lake Ponchatrain bridge once. They are starting to spread out in Louisiana pretty good apparently.

Yeah. They are all over the state now. The atchafalaya basin has a large population. And I always see them down hwy 90 towards Houma also.

Really? I?ve never seen one in the basin but that?s cool to know. I?ll be looking next time I go that way.

We start seeing them in the basin around this time of year as well,In Lake Fausse point too. I even had one fly over my nursery in the berry last month right over hwy 90

I saw one on I-10 not far east of Lake Charles a few weeks ago. You don't realize just how big they are until you see them in person.

I see them at my house everyday
There is a dead cypress tree in the swamp just off if my property line.
They use it to ambush the fish in my pond.

Seeing how big they are would they be good to smoke and make gumbo or maybe too tough and stringy ???

Waiting for "Da Point.." to chime in with his cousin's recipe. It should be a good one;).

Usually have a pair winter near my duck lease in Cheneyville. If one gets anywhere near a flock of geese or ducks they will up and run 'quick fast in a heartbeat'!

Last year we saw an immature Bald eagle hit a specklebelly but he wasn't able to hold onto it and the speck flew away. We also saw a pair of bald eagles do the "death spiral" which I understand is part of their pair bonding.

?PAIR BONDING?. Is that what the kids are calling it these days. 🤣🤣

nice, past few years I've been able to spot some in Lake Martin, Henderson, Burns Point, and there were some in Sulphur last year.

In the last few years I've seen two bald eagles in the Carlyss area and saw one in the Fields area this past spring. I also saw two caracara(Mexican buzzards) in the Carlyss area recently. The caracaras are pretty neat looking too.

I had a immature bald eagle attack one of my pond geese in the back yard this week. he messed him up some but couldn't finish him off. mfer needs to find a new spot to hunt. lol
