More eagle visits

While on Ft. Richardson yesterday I got the attention of several eagles. With the beautiful sky and chilly weather I was able to take some nice shots. With their slow fly bys it was almost like they were posing.

There were 2 different mature eagles. One was more curious than the other. It would fly closer but the other kept its distance.

I was the only one out there and they were definitely showing off for me.

I counted 7 immatures before I stopped counting. I wasn't sure if I was counting the same ones after a bit. It was the highest concentration of eagles in one place that I've seen where there wasn't a feeding going on. What a day!!!
