Where have they all gone?

Steller’s Sea Eagle

Not many Eagles at all at Yakumo today. Barely 20 or so. In recent years the eagle season has been shortening (possibly due to decline in the salmon runs) but we’re not even in the middle of January yet.

This one was a nice flyby but there really weren’t many of them around at all.

Still bitterly cold and loads and loads of snow. Not much else around: Smew and Japanese Waxwing were the most interesting.

Maybe they were hunkered down somewhere waiting for milder weather…………
