A roadside surprise


A Mountain Hawk Eagle in Yakumo today.............


It was right by the roadside and it was tricky shooting it with a 500mm in portrait mode out of the car window..............

It didnt move much...........



The regular Stellers and White Taileds were resting high in the trees, there were only gulls and crows feeding on salmon in the river...............

Odd to see this Glaucous Gull so far inland, usually it's just Slaty Backed/Common or Black Headed Gulls upstream...............

  2. Great job with the eagle despite shooting under less than ideal conditions.

  3. Great find ! I once had a juvenile close to a tour bus I was on; - the only technical issue was other people's heads in the way !
