The Stare Down

A group of photographers got together last week for our annual trek to Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge.  It was dreary day with fog, and clouds all day. The light was flat, flat, flat. Thankfully there was a nice variety of birds on the ponds.

The first time around the auto-route there was Bald Eagle high up in it’s favorite tree. I call this tree the “Eagle Tree” because there’s been an Eagle perched in it the last 3 years I’ve been there.  I wonder if this is the Juvenile Bald Eagle I’ve seen in years past grown up with an all white head now? Aren’t they majestic!

Later in the day high in the Eucalyptus trees there was a juvenile Bald Eagle surveying the land and ponds,

These Snow Geese were the only ones we saw up on the bank. I think one had an injured wing and the other two were keeping it company.
