Doug, thanks for posting your beautiful bird pictures. Between you and Rick,
I am really inspired to try my hand at the birds. I've long had this
admiration for the elegance and beauty of eagles, but have not gone to find
and photograph them, given that I do not have extremely long lenses.
However, with your encouragement and examples I guess it's really up to me
to get out there and try.

I know Alaska has an abundant supply of Eagles, but since I live in northern
California I'd like to find a closer location. I understand Clamouth Falls
is a natural wintering spot for Eagles and that's not to far from here. It
is basically on the California and Oregon border. It may be too late to
catch them this year, but I'm going to try it next winter. In the meantime,
I think I'd better get out there and start practicing on other bird

Thanks to both Rick and Doug for sharing such beautiful images. I've got a
lot to learn. - Jim Christie
