This we week went to Skagit Valley in western Washington state to enjoy the beautiful fields of blooming tulips. But we also had the the thrill of seeing a lot of Bald Eagles. I managed to get a few good pics of them.

Fabulous photos, Judy. Thank you for sharing.
Friends on Vancouver Island voiced concern to me, that there were fewer eagles this past year, as there were fewer salmon for them to feed on.

Living with Bald Eagles
by: Judy-Seattle

Yes, Joanne. We used to live on a rural island near Port Townsend, WA on the Olympic Pennisula. There was a eagle nest in a tree across the street from our house. Every year we watched them rebuilt their nest and raise their eaglets. Their menu included crows, ducks, seagulls and even our neighbour's cat. (Our boys found a cat skull at the base of their tree.) Then our kitten disappeared, too. I assume they were finding fish, too.

Gorgeous photos, Judy! Thanks so much for sharing. My husband and I live on a small acreage just outside of Red Deer, Alberta (between Calgary and Edmonton) and we are privy to these lovely birds on occasion. They likely nest near the Red Deer River, where they can easily catch fish and other small rodents. We have seen them fly so low that you could see their talons! It is certainly a treat to see them!
