Eagles

Throughout February & March I was constantly on the lookout for Bald Eagles during my day trips in and around the Comox Valley. Following are the results of my searches.
 
 
  
 This one is a juvenile - I was told - because it still had spotting on its chest and the adult bald eagles don't acquire their magnificent white crowning feathers until the birds are about 4-5 years old.





This group were on the Lazo Bay boat ramp, awaiting fish spoils from the boats that had been out catching Herring & Salmon


 

 
What magnificent creatures they are!  I never tired of seeking them out and observing their graceful flight.

Wow, Valerie!! These are fabulous!! I was in awe of the Bald Eagles when I visited Alaska in 2015.
It was also very interesting to discover that they are in fact smaller than our Wedge-tailed Eagles.
