I have been very fortunate to be able to photograph a family of bald eagles this winter. As the ice has yet to freeze over they have ample food here. The lake has frozen with a light layer a few times only to melt again after the next warm spell. This winter has been very different for sure. Jan 27th and I am only starting to get a lot of feeder birds at my house. Some mornings it actually sounds like spring. But to be able to watch this family of bald eagles so readily. Well it has been a wonderful experience for sure. I have spent many an hour standing amongst cedar trees and pines. Just watching these birds with respect and love. These are magnificent birds that I have been very lucky to watch before, monitoring a nest from a boat and watching Mom & Dad raise 2 little ones up to the first flights and teaching to hunt. An incredible bond. So this family has been so wonderful for me. The next 3 or 4 pages are some shots I have taken in the last month.I hope you enjoy them.
