This territory is on the north side of the Island, like our web cam Nest, but over to the right a few territories.
They seem pretty nomadic, & there have been years where we weren*t sure if they nested, as we never found a Nest.
But there is definitely an active pair here.
Last year there was at least one Eaglet spotted on the Nest.
You can read about that, & find links to previous seasons here.

i was driving along the road in this territory looking at perch Trees as i went when i spotted this pair in a Tree next to the access down to Clam Shell beach.
The lighting & the blue sky were pretty nice!

The Eagle on the right has Herring scales stuck to their beak, just like the Eagles had who we spotted in the Ground Observations topic that day.
The Herring are around, & sometime they get forced into tight balls near the surface by diving Birds or Sea Lions, & then the Eagles & Gulls can try to grab one or even more.
 

 


A view of both from the back, just for fun & comparison.

The next day we are looking for sunshine to warm up in so we decide to go to Clam Shell to see if we can see Birds!
We found what we were looking for, & spent quite a while there, just watching them all coming & going in the little bay there.

Look at the gorgeous colours of the water & this fabulous Duck.

A lot of the Birds left the bay, but we waited & they all came back again & brought their friends.

There had been a Herring Spawn in Middle Bay the day before, & i went driving around to all the spots where there had been interesting sightings.
i missed all the big action but was happy enough to spot this lovely Bird in this shallow tide pool that is actually quite large, depending where the tides are at.
Lovely water in the background to boot.

Love this one, with the rubbery foot just coming out of the water.
Plus the water texture.
