    Tuesday afternoon (12/19/17) a lone eagle was perched on one of the remaining tall firs on Hanna Park Rd. In the past this has been the territory of the Hutt Park pair. I don't know who is claiming it now.

    Eagles love to soar in high winds. Wednesday afternoon (12/20/17) two of them were soaring north of Sunset Ave. in the airspace of the Hutt Park pair.

    I have taken hundreds (probably thousands) of photos of sunsets and eagles, but have only taken a few shots of an eagle in the sunset. I got lucky Saturday evening (12/23/17) and got some grab shots of an eagle (probably one of the Hutt Park pair) in the sunset.

    The eagle flew south past Sunset Ave. just as I pulled up in my pickup. I was afraid I lost the opportunity for a shot, but the eagle circled around (possibly after seeing one of the Pt. Edwards pair perched on the piling by the ferry dock) and flew back north.

    The eagle was horribly back lit as it flew fairly close past me, but I was able to lighten the photos in post processing.

    The eagles celebrated a sunny New Year's day afternoon by flying between the fish hatchery, Pt. Edwards, and the marina.

    What looked like a second year juvie (note the bandito mask starting to form on its head) flew by as we were leaving the marina. I saw a similar one fly over the marsh the previous day.

    Wednesday afternoon (1-3-18) one of the Pt. Edwards pair flew past its mate perched on the family tree at the top of Pine St.

    Good shots, Bill. Nice to see them back - they must be the same pair we have had over a few years.

    The past 2-3 days of rain gave me a bad case of cabin fever. Even though it was overcast Monday afternoon (1-8-18), I had to get put and take some photos.

    Construction of the new apartments at Pt. Edwards has not discouraged the resident eagles from perching on their tree at the top of Pine St.

    The eagle stopped by the marsh for a drink of water on its way back from the marina.

    I hustled to get the 7DII + 500L telephoto + 1.4x teleconverter mounted and leveled on the tripod before the eagle took off.

    Because I was shooting with the 7DII, I slowed the shutter speed down to 1/250 to get as low an ISO setting as possible. For that reason, things were blurred when the eagle took off.
