West Seattle weekend scene: Eagles on the beach

(Click image for a larger view)
Making a very public West Seattle appearance on the eve of the most patriotic of holidays, it’s our national symbol, the bald eagle, times two, on a stretch of Alki sand revealed as the tide goes out (it’ll be -2.0 at 1:56 pm). Thanks to Debra Salazar Herbst for sharing the photo!

    Saw these two out on the sandbar while on my bike ride about an hour ago. It looked like they were just hanging out, waiting for the surfskimmers to get there…

    Looks like they are saying…”Ah yeah this looks like a great spot for our 4th of July fish picnic.” Nice photo!

    See em all the time near sw jacobsen rd
    I even saw one drop what looked like a big cutthroat and another one caught it before it hit the ground
    Anyone know what the all brown one is?
    Its way bigger than a bald eagle and i only see one every once in a while
    It flew over me while i was in the hottub and i think it might be a golden eagle
    But who knows

    The younger eagles are all brown until they are three years old, then they get the white head. You may have seen a young eagle.

Sorry, comment time is over.
