In the last couple of weeks I have observed several varieties of raptors in my travels in the Palouse. I saw the osprey at the top of this post while photographing a fly fishing trip on the Grande Ronde River in eastern Washington. The bald eagle in the picture below was observed near Asotin, WA. Bald eagles are not as plentiful in the Palouse as they are in western Washington so I was happy to spot this one.
In the final images is a juvenile red tailed hawk that I saw just to the east of Cheney, WA. If you are interested in photographing raptors there are several varieties that can be seen throughout the Palouse. I keep my eyes open and my camera on the seat next to me so that I am ready if I observe one of these graceful, powerful birds.
It’s so nice to see photos that really speak to how much time you have spent and how much care you have for this marvelous land. I’ll look forward to seeing more images of the Palouse and the way that YOU see them.
Thanks for your comments Keron. I would love to take you over there sometime and let you experience the beauty firsthand.
