Eagle Watching

Today the skies were blue in Seattle! With this in mind, we hopped in the car after church and headed north. Lest you think it's not still winter here in Washington, take a look at this photo taken at a roadside park in Rockport.


In the winter months bald eagles from Alaska and Seattle winter on the Skagit and Nooksak rivers because they can feast on plenty of salmon that spawn here. At this particular park, volunteers set up telescopes for viewing the birds, and today was no exception. Dick got a couple of good shots here, but on down the road away from the official viewing site, we spotted at least 5 more of the stately birds. It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
