Photos 2/7/14 – Slow Day But Got a Few

Photos 2/7/14 – Slow Day But Got a Few. Today was slower than yesterday but I did get a few eagle photos, some photos of Herbie (Chinese Chin) and a few mergansers. I think food was scarce so it was slow. I saw Mergansers find 2 jigs and did drop them back in the water.

Herbie

I saw this eagle fly up and steal this fish from the eagle sitting in the tree. I wasn’t sure until I got home and looked at the photo and sure enough it has the fish. It was so slow I followed the eagle catching the fish and flying to the tree.
