Very nice, Rocky! I have yet to encounter these guys (either kind) in decent light or somewhere that decent framing can happen. That first shot is "the" shot, IMO.

Always a beautiful bird to see. Super job, Rocky. Hope they haven't all moved on by now.

Thanks, Eric! They've been hanging around Magnuson Park in Seattle for some time now, hopefully the weather will break again before they leave and you can get over there for some shots!

Thanks, Rog! They've been in that area for a week or more, and there seems to be enough for them to eat, so hopefully they'll be around a while longer...
