The Perfect Eagle Tree
Eagle Tree © Amber Miller
This tree by the mouth of the Samish River estuary is the best place for spotting sitting eagles on the Samish flats.
Amber Miller caught these 17 eagles watching for breakfast. Up to 32 eagles have been seen there at one time this winter.
This time of year means good conditions for photography. Send yours to our webmaster. 1/11/13
