Eagle-eyed photographers

Feels like West Seattle’s resident bald eagles have been more visible this year than ever. And tonight, a couple examples of photographic proof: First, a photo sent to us by reader Marci, taken recently just west of The Junction:


Second, Rhonda @ Beach Drive Blog posted some great eagle pix (and heron pix too) from her neck of the woods shore. These beautiful birds’ prevalence here is still a miracle, given the state of their species not that long ago.

    So cool – thanks for those! Brave crow in the first photo ;)

    thought I’d share photos of this brown crow that my wife and I have spotted around Thistle and California. Neat, unique bird. Kind of like having our own white buffalo.

    Eagles and Crows are natural “enemies” of a sort, but only where there are lots of crows around. Maybe when there’s just one and one they leave it be.

    That Crow sure looks like a snack to that Eagle their.

    Actually, there was a huge bunch of crows flying around in circles above the eagle’s head…it was very fascinating.

    Hey, nbp, thanks for posting that! I did a double take on what must have been that same bird in that are a week or so ago, but I wasn’t 100% sure it was a crow.

    nbp – just saw Stanley (and I assume his friend from the pic)! We said hi … wonder if he knows he’s becoming famous!

    nbp – I 1st Stanley this winter. I just sent an email to a UW research team that bands crows asking for info about his coloration. Will let you know if they answer.
