I was at Bombay Hook this past Sunday photographing the many herons and egrets that are feasting on all the fish at the refuge when I noticed a Bald Eagle flying around. He caught a fish and took it to a tree to eat and then another eagle appeared and did the same. During the next three hours or so, there was hardly a minute that went by when there wasn’t an eagle in the air! I’m not sure how many are currently at the refuge but I know there are at least nine because at one point I saw that many flying around at the same time!

As you can see, they’re all different ages…
