The Eagles Have Landed

The return of the steelhead trout and salmon in the Okanogan River also means the return of the eagles. While I see an occasional eagle during the summer months, they are definitely more prevalent once the fish return to the river to spawn.

These four magnificent creatures were only about 100 yards apart just south of Malott where I picked Karl up after he spent the day on the river.

What an awesome sighting, and great shots.

Don't suppose you'll be making a lot more trips over unless you go the long way around.

I never tire of the majestic sight of the Bald eagle (unless of course, it’s absconding with one of my hens)! What a sight to see few at a time!

Beautiful birds -- and how lucky you were to get these pictures, especially of more than one!

Amazing aren't they.
They are arriving here in the valley too. MB
