Eagles again

Our State bird--Western Meadowlark

Ringnecked Ducks--not native to Nebraska, just migrating through.

Two adult eagles. One atop each evergreen tree.

Went to check on a swan that had been spotted at the Zebra farm pond which is not far from the Llama farm. No luck with the swan but we did see a Bald Eagle. I was able to get a few good shots before it flew off. We drove around the section then spotted it sitting atop an evergreen tree. I took a couple pictures then notice there was another one sitting in the tree next to it.
Unfortunatley the sun was not cooperating at the time so the pictures have a grey look to them. I went back about an hour later when the sun finally came out but they had moved on.

Also saw some Ringnecked ducks and a Medowlark. I'm not sure why the ducks are called Ringnecked when they are identified by the white rings on their bill. They are also not native to Nebraska, only passing through.

You're getting so good at finding the birds. You better just go ahead and get that 400mm lens and be done with it!
