Bald Eagles

The eagles are wintering nearby again.  They have come to Bayview on Lake Pend O'reille, and Wolf Lodge Bay at Couer d'Alene Lake.  We have about 200 eagles this year, up from about 180 last year. 

The eagles winter at the larger lakes when the smaller lakes up north freeze over.  That ice prevents the eagles from fishing and eating. 

This year I managed to get a couple of decent pictures.  I may go back for more.

I wish this guy had been flying towards me.  He caught a kokanee right after I got this shot.
