Eagle Aerial Battles

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Jan 10, 2018.

  1. It's quite sight to see these eagles going at one another right out in front of you, it's amazing to just watch let alone be able to capture a few shots of them in action. Here's a few from one of my last trips to the salmon spawning rivers of Washington State.
