Some 2020 Eagles

White-tailed Eagle

An immature White-tailed Eagle at Yakumo this morning………

Doesn’t look like it’s going to be a long eagle season this winter. There were only a few upstream, they’ve eaten all the salmon. I thought it had been a pretty good salmon run last autumn but apparently not.

At least there were quite a few gathered around the river mouth. This is often a good spot to watch them feed but as with the spots up the valley, food is very scarce. I could fire off plenty of BIF shots as they flew low over the main bridge in town.

Background is very important in BIF shots as you can see:
