West Seattle scenes from a spring-is-approaching Saturday

Thanks to everyone who continues to share wonderful photographs – particularly of our wildlife, plant life, and other scenery, as well as news events big and small, breaking and not (here’s how to share something, any time) – Top photo, Danny McMillin caught one of West Seattle’s eagles lifting off from a madrona snag on Alki Point today. Next, the sunny scene at Alki this afternoon, photographed by JayDee, who observes that warmth-deprived West Seattleites seemed like crocuses, popping out once the sun appeared:

And from Trileigh, tonight’s golden sunset, viewed from the Lincoln Park bluff:

More in queue for tomorrow already … more photos and more nice weather (at least by afternoon, says the forecast).

    Flock of Seagulls chased an Eagle for about 45 min at C & P Coffee The “Outside “C & P ers” are entertained by the birds all year long. We have a bird nest on the Patio and watch all babies born-they have become our friends

    Flock of Seagulls? The 80s band? Wow.

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Thanks, as always, for the great photos!

    One day back in the early-mid ’90’s, I was visiting some friends in the Highland Park area. We were sitting out on their back deck, and noticed an eagle sitting on the branch of a large tree across the street (and noticeably bending down said branch). There were some crows flying around it, harassing it.


    Although these many years later I don’t recall how many, I’m sure at the time we were Counting Crows.

    There are two bald eagles at Alki Point just north of the lighthouse, they’ve been around for a few weeks now and are often working the beach area with the seagulls. The gulls use to chase them off but they seem to have settled in. There was a small traffic jam on the sidewalk today as three people were taking photos of the same bird on the same madrona snag and several others just watching.
