Bald Eagle as Your Alarm Clock

This Bald Eagle was my alarm clock today at Eagle Manor. Every day, in the morning and evening, the Bald Eagles perch in the tree overlooking the Eagle Manor mansion house. They’ll do this as long as there’s not a lot of activity on the front lawn. If you’re quiet enough you can even get […]

July Sunset at Eagle Manor

I snapped this beautiful sunset yesterday evening. The extra humidity associated with the heatwave has made for some excellent sunrises and sunsets this week. This was taken from our River Deck overlooking the Cohansey River, but their was an equally beautiful view from the stocked Reflecting Pond behind the Historic Dairy Barn. I also have […]

Bald Eagle on Back Neck Rd.

Past Eagle Manor, the Back Neck Rd. proceeds into the wilderness of Dix Wildlife Management Area and eventually turns into a dirt road best navigated on foot or by jeep. Those who venture further are handsomely rewarded with raptor views unparalleled anywhere else […]

Eagle Manor Eagle Flyby

We were out performing some aerial photography with our video drone about a quarter mile south of the Manor house today and we had a little visit from a young Bald Eagle. At first I thought it was a red-tailed hawk, but the plumage didn’t match. Immature Bald Eagles are easy to confuse with other […]

The Guinea Fowl Keets are Here

This year’s brood of guinea fowl keets have arrived and are growing steadily in their brooding box. They’ll be in the brooding box for a month before we let them loose on the the grounds. These guinea fowl are ornamental but they also help to keep the pests down, especially ticks, which is always a plus. Here’s […]
