Buzzsaw - yes, these were taken at Colville Park in Red Wing. I also went to Old Frontenac and Reid's Landing on Wednesday. Reid's Landing was very good and I was able to get right up to an Eagle there as well. Old Frontenac had a few but nothing compared to Colville and Reid's Landing. It's interesting how many juvenile Eagles are at Colville - I'd estimate 50% are juveniles. However, at Reid's Landing they were all adult, mature Eagles - I didn't see any juveniles there - ?!

Seeing all those juveniles is a good sign of healthy birds in the area, there are alot around Blackdog as well. I'm heading down to Colville in a few minutes. I'll post anything decent that I take. Hope the sun comes out :-)

Wow! These are outstanding. To be able to get so close to one of these must have been a real treat. Only ones I ever see are 200 feet up in a tree or flying even higher..........thekman.

Linda, I was down there all morning and it was pretty much cloudy... it finally cleared up but I didn't get any close ups. I counted 63 Eagles and there were many more that were tucked back around the corner towards the NSP plant. I'll get back down there soon... are they they yeararound or do they leave in the spring?

Hey there Linda - those are some great shots. Would see these birds all the time swooping down and getting their dinner while I was fly-fishing for mine. That is when I live in WA. Just bought the same Canon lens however, don't expect to see any Eagle in SOCAL. Chase some down my way.
