Summer eagles...

Had the day off work and felt like shooting eagles and while summer usually isn't anything like the fall/winter activity, it ended up being a good day. (bigger)

My goal for the day was to practice tracking birds in flight (I figured that if there weren't eagles at least there would be gulls so it should be an achievable goal. (bigger)

I was surprised that there were a decent number of juveniles around but not that much competition for the catches (usually it gets rather dramatic when one succeeds and the others converge)... (bigger)

Overall it was an all around successful day, lots of time observing behavior and learning new things that hopefully translate into better work later int he year.  (bigger)
