Best viewed large. Two big crows boldly dive-bombed a young bald eagle that was eying something they had in a madrona tree on the Magnolia neighborhood's north shore. I'm guessing it was their nest of eggs, but didn't see it from my vantage point. We were out for our evening walk on Tuesday and noticed all this up-close bird action in a madrona tree in the parkway that overlooks the bluff. This was just after we had watched a Cooper's hawk circling on the evening wind. For those of you who are birders, during our two evening walks through the Magnolia neighborhood this week we saw two mature bald eagles, two young bald eagles, a Cooper's hawk, a spotted towhee, black capped chickadees, crows, gulls, and sparrows (you can see their photos at my Flickr page). I've been on the lookout to show you a great blue heron, Seattle's official city bird, but haven't had a camera when I've seen them.
