On my going home driveby, spotted THIS Eagle in mishi*s Tree!
They are facing the Sun, so i am not in the best spot for exposure.
Looking towards our Nest.

She is at the age where her eyes are almost blue, before they turn full white.

On my way home i flew through the neighbourhood.
Someone is incubating & you can just see the top of their white head to the left of the green Fir branch.

i went down to Grassy Point because i had heard there was a Killdeer on eggs there.
Yikes, this is such a busy spot, dogs running around, bikes, lots of people & kids.
& the eggs blend in so well with the ground, they are invisible.
So i went to check it out.
i walked carefully on the paths & kept my eyes open.
i*d heard someone had surrounded the Nest with driftwood, so that made it easy to spot.
i kept my distance & was checking out the Camas, which i waited too long to do as some of it has gone past already.
An Eagle landed in Glass House Tree!
Looking towards Em on The Nest.

Here is a fabulous foto of the Killdeer eggs & Nest.

& from a long ways away, here is the Killdeer incubating, surrounded by driftwood.
Even from far away, i am being watched.
Got this foto & got out of there.
Killdeer eyes always look so woebegone!

As i was walking up the hill to leave, i heard Gulls making a ruckus on the shoreline or out on the water & the male Eagle took off for the water, & two Eagles from over towards Niner territory headed out there too!
i started a video to see what they did, you can hear the Gulls calling, i think they told the Eagles there was food, i saw our male seem to grab something from the surface of the water & fly back in, but the video is out of focus.
Here he is coming back.
i was surprised to see he had something!
A Fish!
Not sure what kind.
Midshipmen are found in among the rocks when the tide goes out, whereas this one was picked off way out there on the water.
Maybe this is a Rat Fish?

You can see the Fish if you zoom in on this one.
