Birds of Tomales Bay – The eagle(s) have landed

Click the words above to see this entire post (you won’t be disappointed)

Venturing out on Tomales Bay in a boat is a magical thing.

If one sets out early, before the death-wish motorcyclists race their way up and down route 1, and there are no planes overhead, all I hear are birds, waves and wind. With an occasional bugling elk depending on where I am and what time of year it is.

Recently I witnessed an amazing thing.

From first contact with each other, to separation, twenty seconds elapsed.

Seventy-nine images were recorded during this time period.

Below are ten I selected for your viewing pleasure.

They are a bit soft, for which I apologize. I was hand-holding a 400mm lens, in a boat, on the water. And it unfolded quickly.

Enjoy. I did.
