So called because I see him almost everyday in the same tree at 5 p.m.

He is one very handsome eagle !

Howdie Charlie!

I have one that sits on a telegraph pole on the lane. Not too sure what he/she is but always flies off when anyone/anything approaches :(

I was thinking of "5 O'clock Charlie" as immortalised in "MASH". Your title made me wonder if he was based on a real event. But yours is much better!

That's why I named him Charlie, after the M*A*S*H episode with 5 O'Clock Charlie since he always seems to appear at 5 p.m.

This was from today, with a tele-extender on the 70-300 mm.

Charlie showed up, on time today. The weather wasn't the best for long lens work, gray and overcast. As I was trying to get my exposure adjusted correctly, one of the employees of the bait shop in front of his tree came out and started talking to me. That was all it took for Charlie to take off.

Redwolf5150 - 26-9-2014 at 00:13

He stood me up today.

Sent a couple crows in his place.

Came across four adults and three juvenile eagles feeding on a road kill deer Saturday.

I spent 15 minutes slowly stalking up on them while Jackie stayed in the car just AMAZED at how close I was able to get on foot.

Oh! to have the time to do so, can you post some exif data too, please.

You have not been "dismissed" until you have received the "Eagle Stink-Eye"

Was photographing Charlie in his usual 5 O'Clock spot the other day but who should swoop in but his mate Charlene.

[bad img]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a224/redwolf5150/150305-1_0158%20Charleen_zpsqqjgab4z.jpg[/bad img]

Charlene being the usual pain in the butt, immediately swooped off again as soon as she saw me standing there shooting.

LSemmens - 8-3-2015 at 00:58

But you got a fantastic shot!!!!!

They even allow me to get inside of 10 feet from them from time to time.

He looks almost aloof, as if to say,

but you doing, you must do, most politely, most politely" (Gilbert & Sullivan)

Zoom or he lets you get that close now?

Good on you Charlie.

Combination of both PLUS he had a meal he wasn't going to leave.

If I had stuck around longer, or got out of my van (I was shooting through the lowered passenger window) he probably would have taken off.

Like I said, I have YET to figure out WHY Bald Eagles let crows get away with harassing them like they do.
