The eagles are coming

The salmon are running, which brings the bald eagles to the lake to feast.  I don't have a good camera, so getting the really good pictures I leave to the rest of my family, but I was able to snap this one on my phone.  The days are very overcast right now, so the lighting is not exactly conducive, but it's not terrible.  A third eagle joined these two right after I started walking away. 

I spent a long time just watching the eagles fish on the lake.  It's quite cool to watch them dive down and snag a swimming salmon in their talons then take off.  If you look at the trees around the lake, the eagles are really easy to spot with their white heads.  Some trees have a dozen or more eagles perched in them.
