Nice pics TOM.

Why are there so many eagles there? What is the food source? When I was up in AK a couple years ago, the eagles would be waiting for the fishing boats or fisheries.

You don't see too many eagles down in Oregon. I see 2 or 3 pairs near I-5 mp 222 quite regularly. And an eagle once in a while in my local travels around OR. Thanks for sharing all you pics. KEN

I'm not certain Ken, I think their food sources freeze up in the north. There is a large group that shows up in the fall for the salmon run in the Skagit River and then these birds move out in search of another supply. Right here there is a long duck hunting season, the hunters wound some birds that elude them and the eagles take care of that. There is also a lot of rodents in the fields that aren't being worked in the winter, a large hawk population also enjoys them. The eagles and the ducks seem to be migratory, there is probably some ornithologists study that has more detailed information on these questions.

Very cool pics of the falls. I've never gone down there and seen them in the winter. Will have to do that now.

I've seen bald eagles in groups of hundreds on the Columbia river. Not sure it's food related, most were just hanging out.
Great pics! Thanks for posting.

You need to head to Southern Oregon. There are plenty of eagles there.

Quote:
1. KLAMATH BASIN, on the California-Oregon border, hosts the largest concentration of wintering bald eagles in the Lower 48. As many as 1,000 eagles occupy the refuge complex during the peak months of January and February. Many of the birds are visible from the Lower Klamath and Tule Lake auto tours.

Thanks, I still haven't figured out how to get them in flight like Tom does.

Tom, what's your technique and camera settings?

I,m using a Nikon D50 with a Pro Master 70-300 zoom, set on auto focus, with landscaping or stop action. I just try to pan with the birds and crop. I got my first 35mm in 1973 and have a AA and BA in Fine Art with photography as my area of interest.
