Now THAT is a pithy trip report for a cross-country adventure.

Either that or it's a proof of life photo as part of a K&R negotiation?

Darn picture does not show it, but this is a immature Bald Eagle on the south side of town. I've been seeing two adults for the last few month - then this young one - hope they start breeding here.
And yes rare sighting E-Kat.

Actually not entirely rare. Been watching this guy for over a year now. Circled me while fly fishing on the river the last three days. Watched him catch a thermal for like 20 minutes the other day. He go got so high I just couldn't see it anymore. Bunch of Avocets flying WAY above him today. Good stuff!! A breeding pair would be WAY cool.

There were mom, dad and a baby (the size of a cocker spaniel) living in the Lower Lakes Basin one winter when I lived and Rangered and taught skeezin at Tamarack.

There was always open water running under the bridge going into the campground loop. It was a trip to take a class or a tour out there and stand on the bridge and wait for mom or dad to back pedal in for the catch. Most of my students or guests didn't believe their eyes, they thought I was makin' it up.

HA!

It was a rare and precious time. Like. . . out of 20 years, I only saw them that one winter. . . and . . . I was a serious observer of such things.

I've also seen a pair out at Hot Creek hatchery this winter. It appeared as if a sub-adult was hanging about as well.

2 summers ago there was a pair nesting above Saddlebag Creek below Sawmill Campground. There are usually a pair at June Lake. I've seen them on Hot Creek in the winter for many years now.

Yes,the one(s) at Hot Creek have been there for multiple seasons. The one that appears to be a big male we've even affectionately named "Melvin". The one down here on the LO we've named "Owen". When deciding where to to fish we've been saying "well,should we hang with Melvin or Owen today?"

Yes...We are dorks. ;-)

YAY, JWerd. . . glad to hear there are some up there.

I paddled out to one of our local aeries today and one of the adults is quietly sittin' on the eggs, while the other adult was out soaring with both of last year's babies, who look more like Goldens than Balds.

There was only one other person out there, a fisherman in a row boat, and there wasn't a breath of wind. It was really quiet and really neat.

I'm going to go out there as often as possible to monitor the progress.

YAY!

Nice Mr. E

The double rainbow is more common in this valley than any other place I've ever visited. The first time I saw one here I was stoked. Now, unless it's a triple or quadruple, meah. :)
