Little Tribune Bay is a lovely spot!
A sandy beach with rocky shores on either side, a big River that comes pouring down through the beach when the rains get going in the fall & winter, & fronted by lovely grassy farm fields that sometimes have Cows grazing, & usually have Canada Geese as well.
The beach is clothing optional!
In spite of the people action in this territory, there is an Eagle Nest here.
There are very few large Trees down there, so the Nest Tree is relatively easy to spot.
i*m not sure if the pair here had Eaglets last year.
You can read last season*s topic, & there are links to all the previous seasons here.

We went for a walk down to this beach & there were Eagles everywhere!
We were told that there was a dead Sea Lion on the beach right in front of the parking lot.
There was already a dead Sea Lion a ways over to the left, in front of the golf course.
When we investigated, the second Sea Lion was actually a dead Seal.
So no wonder there were Eagles everywhere.
The first one i spotted was this youngster.

i upped my ISO & it totally changes the colours of the foto.



They started to walk!



so i had to take a video of that!
i just LOVE the hunched over way they walk.  heart
You can hear Otto sniffing the Seal over my left shoulder.
He has smelled the Seal while we are still a long ways away, trying not to scare off the Eagles.

Next i spotted this beauty.
Wasn*t positive who they were, so i took a foto.
Love the white fluff at the base of the back where it meets the tail.

We went for a walk to the right as far as we could go without walking on the slippery rocks, then turned around & came back.
From a long ways off i spotted this youngster air drying, & they didn*t notice me at all once we got back to the parking lot where we were much closer.
The youngster seemed more interested in the goings on of the other Eagles there.

A few days later & we are back here again & there are even more Eagles now.
Some are to the right with the Seal & a whole bunch are to the left with the Sea Lion.
& a whole lot are perched on the beach & in the Trees.
Spent a while photographing this sub-adult.
Nictitating membrane in use here.

If you click on the fotos you will be taken to my flickr page where you can see them as they are supposed to look.

Here*s a jiggly video of this Eagle blowing in the wind.

It is hard to tell from the fotos how hard the Wind is blowing & how the Eagle is having to balance in the Wind, so here is a video.

We went for a walk on Little Trib today & it was nice & calm & then it would start drizzling for a while.
We were resting on a wet log after our walk when we heard a ruckus in the far right(south) corner of Little Tribune Bay.
There were two Eagles, & then a third, & one was being given a good chase, to the point that they flipped upside down in defense twice.
The chased Eagle seemed to hide in a Tree in the corner & then all these calls went back & forth between the pair in the Tree closest to me & the chased Eagle in the corner!

This is a cool foto of the pair in their usual perch Tree, click here to see it.
 
Male & female together, here, listen for second female calling from the corner.
The two females sound like an echo.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqAX3qSCZF8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqAX3qSCZF8</a>

i am having trouble focusing in the rain, so just listen to the calls with this one.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=798USoPxAR0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=798USoPxAR0</a>

The male has flown off & landed higher up in the Tree with the other female.
The female of the pair is still in the same Tree.
 


The far female is calling in this one.
