While out walking on the north side of the Magnolia neighborhood at sunset I saw a pair of eagles circling overhead. This one with a full white head, the other all brown mottled, which I think was a youngster. Kind of thrilling for me. I'd only seen wild bald eagles from the vantage point of a boat before, standing on beaches in the San Jaun Islands close to their nests or diving into the waves to catch some dinner. To see them soaring high on the evening wind was exciting. Seattle Seattle+Daily+Photo eagle bald+eagle Magnolia sunset animals birdsbird birds+of+prey flight soaring
