Eagle pondering early Spring...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sea to Sky Premier Properties (Salt Spring)

Time to pay attention to Nature...and to remember to carry a camera.   Almost missed this huge eagle, enjoying the sun of very early Spring on the great Pacific Northwest Coast.  

His view is Ganges Harbour, on Salt Spring Island, in the Canadian Southern Gulf Islands.   We think about the whales in this area, and the kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding...otters, seals, sea lions...and it's true, the sea is our surround sound.   But suddenly there was another local citizen, and he was big!   Very impressive. 

Important to remember to "look".  With all the varieties of reality avaliable to us in our tech environment, it's a quest to discover a real thing.

Right...lights, camera, and definitely action.  The thing is, he took his time in deciding to fly off.   Lucky me to have been the observer, too.

The other day, I heard a hawk's cries - I looked and looked, but couldn't find it.    Congrats on spotting the eagle AND having your camera ready.    I haven't seen an eagle in decades...
