A flyby

Steller’s Sea Eagle

Not a vintage winter for the eagles but there’s still always the chance for a nice BIF or 2…

Bird of the day was a Rough-legged Buzzard (possibly 2 actually) but too far off for any photos. Hopefully there will be a bit of an influx of them…

The eagles will have to do for now.

Another returnee

White-tailed Eagle

This (male?) White-tailed Eagle has been returning to the same spot in Yakumo for many years now…and he’s pretty tame too.

Not much else around in Yakumo on Friday: the most interesting species was harlequin Duck. We don’t normally see them here but there were at least 4 around including this first winter male upstream…
