West Seattle, Washington
The classic Steve Miller song came to mind as we looked at these photos shared tonight by Gary Jones, from Alki.
Finally, a close encounter with the lighthouse:
Bald-eagle factoid: They can live up to 40 years.
Fantastic photographs! Thanks for sharing, Gary. Can I ask what you were shooting with?
They’re all great pics in their own right, but that top one showing pretty much the entire wingspan is absolutely awesome!
This is courting season for eagles. Keep your heads up for elaborate and amazing aerial displays as they pair up.
Stunning! Thank you for sharing these!
Beautiful! Thank you Gary.
So beautiful — aren’t we lucky to live here!?
Although there are things I don’t like about West Seattle, I feel fortunate to live in a place where I can see first-hand bald eagles, seals, sea lions, and coyotes. And still have a pizza delivered to my house…
BEAUTIFUL photos of the bold eagle! I LOVE the pic of the bird coming down to land on the Light house’s roof!
ohthehorror – I 2nd that! West Seattle is a one of a kind mix of natural beauty & urban conveniences! SOMEDAY I dream of being one of the Lucky people to spot a whale from Alki and I still get to enjoy city life. Ah, Home Sweet Home!
Amazing pics! Look closely about midway down the left wing on the top picture. Is it just me or does that wing look injured? I hope I’m wrong but it looks like this bird may be injured.
Sorry, comment time is over.
