Yes you do!  smile
Looks like an adult, whose breeding plumage is fading toward the more neutral winter garb.

Thanks wren!
i have much to learn.

Okay, we were out walking on this beautiful sunny day when we spotted this adult Eagle perched near the top of the Belcarra Nest Tree.
This was the first Eagle i had seen returned to this neighbourhood.

This Eagle spotted us watching right away.
& unlike the pair that is usually here, seemed not used to being in a neighbourhood, having people watch them.
So, perhaps this was a visitor, rather than one of the Belcarra pair?





There they go!

We continued on our walk, & found this same Eagle in a typical Belcarra pair Perch Tree, not far from the Nest, & closer to the water.

Of course we didn*t escape detection...

This Eagle was doing a slow soar down the road above our heads.
Not sure if this is the same Eagle.
They almost seem to have dark feathering on their head & tail.
Hard to tell with the lighting & distance.

Even from such a height, we are spotted watching.

We went down one of the beach accesses when we heard the distinctive calls of this lovely Bird.
i only managed to get one foto before they took off, giving me heck for interfering.

Okay, it is now a week later, & here is perhaps that same Eagle again, in the same Perch Tree near the water.

& two days later, on the top of the Nest Tree again.
So far, just one, not two.

We were walking down the road right past the Belcarra Nest Tree & right across the road from us was this lovely Raven digging through someone*s nice tidy raked pile of Fir needles!
i thought it was sort of whimsical, watching the Raven scatter needles like this.
Usually they are quite shy, yet we got quite close & watched & i took this video.

Okay, out for our walk, & here is the Belcarra male perched in the top of his Nest Tree in lovely lighting!
 
november 20 2013 15:25 - male Belcarra Eagle in the Nest Tree
 


Notice this Eagle has a distinctive beak on the right side!
i spotted this last year & posted about it here.
Last year i called this the male, so i will call them the male again now.
 


In all of these fotos, he is perched on his left foot, with his right foot bunched up & tucked under his belly feathers.
A relaxed position that also rests & warms that foot.
 


Here he is later, in the same spot, in even beautifuller light!
That distinctive dip mark in the right side of the beak shows up well here.

We see this boat from the cam almost every day.
Here she is a ways to our right, from the cam, in the Belcarra territory.
