Eagles at low tide

A very low tide today and lots of eagles out at the water's edge. At one time I counted two adults with white heads and 8 juveniles with splotched markings. Hard to take distance photos with my little camera, and it is very cold out on our deck (2 degrees C on the thermometer this morning and lots of frost on the north side of the studio roof), but this is what I got.

Four juveniles on the left and an adult in flight on the right.

A juvenile on the left on a rock and 3 juveniles on the beach at centre.

Three or four eagles in flight and more on the beach.

The wire fence is holding down clam shielding netting. The entire beach is a clam and oyster lease.

The juvenile eagles stay close together.

A lone adult eagle. The adults tend to stay aloof from the juveniles.
