Charles Marshburn writes:
A beautiful bird! The hawks and other birds of prey are evidently hungry and showing themselves more frequently in the neighborhood. Yesterday we had a bald eagle visit and scan our chickens and guinea fowl. The picture we took was not the normally fine quality produced by the fowl photographer in residence. If there is a way to enhance the photograph, we would be grateful to whomever has the capability. --Charles Marshburn
Thanks, Charles Marshburn: This photo shows a bald eagle closer to Columbia in your part of Adair County than has ever been reported here. Sightings are fairly common south of Inroad and on into Cumberland County, and maybe those who have seen them in the twin cities of Fairplay-Gadberry just didn't think they were news. Truth is, with several hundred photos in CM Birds of Kentucky, there still are nearly enough. As for the photo you sent, it's grand, as is. Absolutely no apologies. It's a testament to why folks move here from other parts of the country. -EW

Birds of Kentucky: Bald Eagle in tall tree, Gadberry, KY

2012-12-14 - Gadberry, District 3, Adair County, KY - Photo from Charles Marshburn. Bald Eagle at Gadberry for Chicken Dinner: "Our elegant visitor on December 13, 2013! It is in one of the trees. You will need a magnifying apparatus," writes Charles Marshburn. While birders might want more detail of the bird, many will greatly appreciate the context of the beautiful countryside at Gadberry. It is a great statement that there are wonderful rare sights along the countryside, but one has to slow down, be observant, to really appreciate it. - CM For more on Bald Eagles: All About Birds - Bald Eagle
