Fish for Lunch Too

DSCN1249.jpg

Here’s another Eagle shot. This one an immature Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) with a lovely dead Salmon for lunch. This guy will be White by next year. You can just see the white coming in around it’s bill, which will also turn colour as it ages!

Looking to the Future

The Bane…

…to photography! There’s always that branch or that powerline or whatever, in the way. This beauty was quite a ways away from me, and I used full zoom on my P900 and didn’t see the branch. If I would I would have moved down a wee bit and maybe got rid of the branch. Anyway, here’s a beautiful Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in all it’s splendor!


Birds Galore

 This flock of Gulls, about 90 of them with sitting in the field until we drove up, then they took off. Also on the field were a bunch of ducks. Find the Mallards here! Also in the trees there’s about 35 crows and over the other way a Bald Eagle. So it was productive!


Watching

IMG_2903.jpg

Bald Eagles on the top of a communications tower at the end of White Rock pier.  I’m told there are a large number of Eagles this year because of the size of the Salmon runs.  To me it appears these guys were keeping an eye on the Gulls as there were quite a number on the jetty right below them.


Yes, I See You..

Establishing Territory

A Bald Eagle re-establishing it’s territory at a traditional nest site.

The nest is just out of the frame on the left.  It has been vacant for the past few months.  As we head into winter, the Eagles will re-claim the site for nesting come Spring.

A regal Bald Eagle.  I always wonder how a bird of this size can get in among all those branches

Up the coast there is a spot where the Eagles are very prevalent this time of year.  They have an annual Eagle count.  This years count (last weekend) came up with a total of 1000 Bald Eagles!  How great is that!
