Hi! My name is Ms. McCullagh. I will continue to post nature related photos and videos on this great outlet - thank you, Earthwatch! I traveled with Earthwatch to Maryland to study Climate Change and Fragmented Forests at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center.

Eagles, Golden and Bald, and lovely scenery on St. Joseph's Bay

We were stunned to find four Golden Eagles and Bald Eagle on St. Joseph's Bay this afternoon! So close and a few flew overhead to our awe and amazement.

We stayed to observe these high fliers for almost half an hour, and we have plans to return this evening at sunset.

Lovely views of the bay from the bayou...

Cape San Blas Lighthouse has been restored and moved to higher ground; its original location has long since been swallowed by the Gulf of Mexico.

We also spied a sandpiper scavenging the edgewater for food - I was happy to capture the bird and its reflection and shadow in a photo.

We enjoyed a walk along the beach where many skeleons of cypress trees rest in the sand.
