p.1 #1 · Annual Mid Winter Eagle Survey


I had the good fortune of being able to observe for the survey at the local fish ponds. By good fortune I mean that had there already been someone volunteering for that spot I would have been assigned somewhere that I didn't know the birds. That would have been fine with me but being able to work a known area was a bonus. I would have been grumpy if I would have ended up on the bank of some river freezing my butt off and never seeing an eagle.
Between 7:00 and 8:00 I was able to count five identifiably different juvis and one mature. For the next 3 hours there were more sightings but I'm pretty sure they were the same birds.
Anyway, there were a lot of shots in the dark (literally) for the purpose of later identification but I did manage a few that I'd like to share.
One.





Two.





Three.





Four.





Five.

Nice high key work Mike! I normally am not a big fan of wing positions like 3 but I think you really pulled this one off nicely

Mike, I admire photographers who can go out and shoot, rain or shine, and then bring home keepers despite inclement weather and poor light.

All of your eagles in flight are caught with fine wing attitude, well focused and exposed despite unfriendly light/sky colour.
The #3 is particularly nice because the bird looks "tight", and it conveys a sense of power and speed.

Good work on these Mike. I'm starting to think this bird is a pet of yours. Really cooperative.

You are far to kind Peter, thank you.

Actually a couple of birds here Ken but you're right they are a bit more "cooperative" than the others.
Very nice Mike
Appreciate it Morris.
A nice set Mike
Thanks Ron.
