It was a beautiful morning in Eleven Mile Canyon today. Sunny, relatively warm for the high country valley with calm winds. We were hoping to see great blue heron along the river today, but it wasn’t meant to be. We were very fortunate however to see a wide variety of other birds and animals in this unusual display of Eleven Mile Canyon Diversity!
Bald Eagle Nest
The eagles seem to be doing well in the nest and we hope to see little heads popping above the rim soon! Both parents were busy feeding the youngsters this morning, and that is a good sign that there are voracious little ones inside 🙂
We first encountered a juvenile bald eagle on one of the favorite raptor perches, followed by muskrat, American dippers, mountain bluebirds, and red-winged blackbirds! Hopefully we’ll be seeing the herons and maybe cormorants in a few weeks!

Very hopeful news about the eagles 🙂
Yes, I was so afraid to find the valley filled with smoke. I don’t know if an eagle chick could have survived that
