An early finish............


There weren't so many eagles at Yakumo yesterday...............


I guess the smart/healthy ones have realized there isn't any food left and have dispersed (there were quite a few up and down the coast).

The ones that remained looked a bit skinny..............


You can really appreciate the size difference between the White-tailed on the left (presumably a male) and the Stellers on the right (presumably a female).



This young White-tailed was further up the coast.............


So that's probably the end of the 2017/18 eagle season for me, by the time I go up that way again in 2 weeks or so there will be even fewer. A pretty early finish; hopefully the eagles can find some food elsewhere.............and 2018/19 will be better.

  1. Don’t ask me why but it suddenly occurred to me, do you also do this blog in Japanese?

    1. Hi David. No I don't: I can chat away about birds in so-so Japanese but no way could I write anything coherent.................

      English is hard enough as it is!

    1. The 2 species often sit together........it does look a small WTE though, hope the Stellers isn't that hungry..........!
