I found everything I was looking for yesterday morning with an early drive up north of Seattle. By 9am there must have been 50 or more eagles in the air out in front of me, chasing one another for even the smallest bits of whatever was in their talons. I saw eagles snatching ducks off the surface as well as missing ducks on the surface. One eagle was successful in snatching the duck but wasn't able to get it out of the water, one of the more exciting morning in a very long time.
Here's a few shots that I thought were kind of interesting to show the shear number of eagles there were in almost any direction you looked.

Superb set of images!!!!
Nice work Louie. I really like #2. The approaching Eagle in the back makes it for me.
Out of the park, man you gotta love your glass, we sure do...........
Great shots. I also like 1 but all are great. Wish I could get lucky like this!
Thanks very much for all of your comments, I appreciate them. This was quite a morning for me given I'm not sure I've ever seen that many eagles circling in the air out in front of me before.
