These were taken at the Strait of Canso, the body of water that separates mainland Nova Scotia from Cape Breton Island. There was a run of smelt happening, drawing them and many other critters to the area.

Well thanks for the kind comments! Actually the eagles were my #3 reason for the 2 1/2 hour drive from where I live to the Causeway. A Brown Booby had been hanging out there for the previous week and I wanted to get a pic of such a rarity for here, but alas I didn't see it. The whales were my #2 reason for the drive, and they were there, as close as 50 feet from shore, quite amazing to see so close. However eagles will always be primary targets for me, and there's a good number all around my area, so they were a good fallback position after the Brown Booby didn't make an appearance.
