Bald Eagle, out looking for lunch East of Lethbridge
A busy week at the studio with two big shoots and some teaching. This is from last weekend. I just managed to get the files downloaded and edited. Had the opportunity to see two magnificent Bald Eagles out enjoying the nice day. Years ago seeing a eagle in the summer in southern Alberta was rare but in the winter was unheard of. Now they are staying in large numbers all year. I am thinking that the reason for this is that the geese are staying and with so many geese the number of sick and dying birds is enough to sustain the eagles. In the river bottom I can tell when a eagle is flying nearby as the geese take off in huge numbers. Then a few seconds later a bald eagle comes flying down the river.
