Making circles in the sky

A sky full of circling raptors over my village?!
.
We do have a pair of resident eagles that soar above the woods on the rim of our hill, but never have I seen a whole skyful of big birds.
.
And just as quickly as they appeared, they disappeared.

Makes you wonder what they were circling, doesn't it?

That's very cool.
In the mountain's of Southeast Oklahoma where's a place called "Buzzard's Gap", a break in the mountains. I've only been there a few times but there were always several buzzards circling way up high.

That is a lot of big birds! And I'm glad you have pine trees (at least I think I saw pine needles). Pines and hills seem to go together!

They almost look like buzzards circling overhead! A nice change for SkyWatch!

We had a similar experience last week here. I didn't get any pictures quite as good as yours, but I'll post one tomorrow for Skywatch!

Doesn't it make you wonder what they were looking at?

Everytime I see a raptor, I ask, "What's below?" They seem so beautiful, strong, and gloomy at the same time.

That sounds so strange and ominous…

It must have been neat to see so many raptors. I love your first photo of the bird, very pretty.
