Eagle perches at Canoe Pass

It was 2013 when I glanced to the south cliff of Fidalgo Island from Canoe Pass Bridge and spotted this eagle. I have never seen an eagle on that snag since, so I am pleased to have this image in my archives.

Deception Pass respite

Rather than subjecting myself to more news about the coronavirus pandemic I chose today to visit Deception Pass State Park. Fresh air, natural beauty and safe space between me and those who chose the same outdoor adventure. Not escape, but a welcome respite.

Rare sighting

On my many trips to and from Whidbey Island over the years, I have only seen an eagle on this Fidalgo Island snag on two or three occasions. On this day in 2013 I was fortunate to find a parking spot and get to Canoe Pass Bridge in time to take a few shots.

Distracted eagle

If you blinked Wednesday you may have missed the sunshine, but I was fortunate to encounter this eagle and a friend on the Fidalgo Bay shoreline mid-afternoon. I spotted an eagle on the beach, but when I pulled over I found there were two … and they didn’t stick around for a photo op. This […]

It was impossible to get close, but I enjoyed watching this eagle for a few minutes on a perch opposite Canoe Pass Bridge this morning.

Pre-bald eagle

This “pre-bald,” or immature eagle, posed patiently for me last winter. I look forward to photography on the cold, clear days that lie ahead.

Based on the weather forecast, I ventured out Monday afternoon to take advantage of sunshine and blue skies. I was rewarded with this photograph of a bald eagle, leaving its perch on the shoreline of March’s Point.
