No sign of silver band on left leg.

The first time we went to the beach was when there were the most Eagles there.
There was a variety of Eagle ages!

A Sub Adult lands at the scene & causes a re-settling!
Look at the young Eagle in the middle mantling, like when Mum or Dad brings food to the Eaglet.

The poor fella on the right seems unsure how to proceed in this situation.
He may be the young Eagle i got close ups of in the tree behind me, higher on this page.
The Sub Adult has that colour of eye stage that to me has blue in it.
i LOVE all the white from the head down the back of the middle, three year old Eagle!
Have never seen this view before.

boonibarb, that's an eagle buffet!  So many different eagles' ages in your sea lion on the beach photos!  It really helps us to compare their development...thank you!   :ecsmile

i went to this site again early yesterday morning.
There were still piles of Eagles of all ages & lots of calling.
There looked to be a lot of Sea Lion left, even so.
