Bald Eagles of Ferry County

Bald Eagles...
With a geologic landscape of  rolling mountains, and towering cliff faces above cottonwood lined river and stream drainages, lakes, ponds and potholes, hosting a diversity of smaller wildlife, Ferry County has a thriving bald eagle population. Whenever opportunity knocks I try to spend time in the company of eagles. Living in Ferry County, an area where there are at least six nests within an hours drive fortunately makes that opportunity possible.
Here are a few Bald Eagle photographs with more to be added soon...
