More Eagles

The tide was right. The day was warm. So back we went to Newburyport to get some more eagle photos. Unfortunately the first day the action was relatively close by, but the sun was in the wrong place. The second day the light was beautiful, but the eagles weren't very interested in fishing.

Periodically a couple of the eagles would engage with each other trying to grasp the other's talons. Since these eagles are all juveniles, I assume that it is more of a territorial behavior. A couple these photos are at some distance in poor light, but I included them so you could see the behavior.

As we were leaving, we spied a couple more eagles flying to the west of the Chain Bridge. This made for some interesting photos, since we were at or close to their level.
