The two Bald Eagles are still here!

One of the mature Bald Eagles flew towards the Gualala River yesterday, and I had a nice sighting of my own. The big eagle landed on the sandbar of the river and stared out to the ocean. After about twenty minutes, the bald eagle flew over the ocean, dipping down several time, attempting to find a fishy meal.

Ken Bailey photographed the two bald eagles with the backdrop of a large wave several weeks ago.

We wondered if this might be mating behavior, but it is very late for that activity. Playing? Fighting? Practice mating? No one knows for sure.

What we do know is we have two mature bald eagles here for several months now. In the late afternoon they fly north.

Thanks to Ken for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Ken's nature photography, here is his website: http://www.seadreams.org/
