Eagles squabble over salmon catch 11-Dec-2010
We did not see as many eagles as reported on the local news. I talked to a fisherman, a young family and a couple of photographers. One photographer reported seeing hundreds about 15 minutes before we got to Squawkum Park. The fisherman told us about these eagles at Harrison Bay. There were dozens scattered around but distant. These were the best photos I could capture with a 250mm lens. Watching the eagles with binoculars was worth it though. It is a beautiful drive a little over an hour from Vancouver, scenic snow capped mountains on a clear winter December.

The bufflehead nests in cavities in trees close to water. It breeds in forested areas from west-central Alaska through western Canada and the northwestern states.
