Eagles at Freshwater Bay

This afternoon when returning from the store in Port Angeles, Heidi and I decided to go past Dad's place about a mile down to Freshwater Bay. We were pleasantly surprised to see 3 Eagles right by the boat landing. Within just a few minutes of watching them, they were joined by 4 more! Pretty amazing sight! We could only catch 5 of them close enough together to get into one shot while the others flew overhead. We thought it would be fun to share the moment! Enjoy!

  3. AWww how cool is that? We have a pair that come back each spring to nest in a tall pine down the road. It's fun to watch once the eaglets are hatched... the mom and dad spend all day dipping in our river for fish to feed them. Can hear em squawk from the road!

  4. No way!!! I thought I was lucky when we saw one waaaaaaaaaay up high in a tree at Yellowstone. From down where we were, it was the size of a postage stamp. I even pulled out my camera to take pictures hoping the zoom lens would help me see it better.

    All I can say about your photos...awesome!!!

  5. Wow, that is awesome! I bet that made your day. This last weekend I was out kayaking right by our local pier in the Gulf and got to see 4 or 5 dolphins being playful within 10-20 feet of me. I wish I could have gotten pics! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Thanks Everyone for the comments! We really feel fortunate to have seen them all! If you are ever looking for a great destination to tour, the Olympic Peninsula here in Washington is really pretty amazing! Lots of great stuff to see like this! We were really expecting to see our sea otter friends down there this time but the eagles sure were cool to find instead :)

  9. Woah, never seen so many eagles in one spot! I thought they were mostly solitary creatures - guess not, they are all just hanging out on that beach :)
