Eagles Eagles Everywhere

This morning we were on the boat working when we noticed more than the usual number of eagles flying around us. Adults and juveniles flying right past the windows, making their loud eagle sounds. There were maybe…oh, I dunno, FIFTY of them!!

In this photo above (taken from the back of Airship) you can see quite a few flying, but look at where that culvert is…it's low tide, and there are probably 20 of them down there where the water is coming out. A couple of them were even going underneath the flow, as if to shower.

Eagles are like pigeons here in Ketchikan.

Back on the hill there were still a handful up in the trees:

There was one on almost every piling near us, and several on some of the taller boat masts:

It was cool, and a little Hitchcockian. Anyway, thought I'd share.
