The eagles are lined up on the shoreline at Douglas Lake this month just like last year.  I really don't understand why but I'm happy for the opportunity to photograph and observe them.  They will disappear in a month or two, heading back north to the big lakes, streams and rivers in the northern states and Canada.  These shots were pure luck as the sky was bright and the eagles all back lighted.  I'm amazed I got any useful shots.

 The last shots here are of a red tail hawk.
