This is one of many large birds of prey that live and hunt around Trillium Lake. I watched as he sat up on a side branch the prominent dead tree that towers over the north side of the lake. He soon left his perch and dove down, easily catching a fish. While he was away, another bird came and took a survey spot at the very tip of the tree. Later, when bird #1 came back, there were some words exchanged. I do not speak bird, but I do not think they were very nice words ;)

  1. I wonder who won that exchange of unhappy birdwords?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday, Sarah.

  2. It's fun to enter their world for just a moment! Happy Blue Monday!

  3. Cool captures. I played too. Mine are here and here.

  4. We saw a pair of Bald Eagles at Battle Ground Lake Park recently. It's hard to get a good photo. Thanks for yours.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
