However, you can't get close enough to see them without binocs. A local told us about a hiking trail nearby. So off we went. We climbed up several high hills yet we were still quite a distance from the landfill. We did see probably 100 pigeons, a few blackbirds AND maybe 6 eagles. With binocs we could see 3 mature bald eagles sitting on a hill. There were also a few immatures. At one point, we saw an adult go flying with a youngster! I think it was a lesson in snatching snacks from pigeons...LOL (on the job training) We saw what certainly appeared to be a golden eagle perched in a tree as we walked out of the wooded area. And we caught just a glimpse of a bald eagle soar across the treetops as we were leaving. Not too shabby, but the search for seeing mass quantities of eagles will continue.
|This scene was pretty far away.|
This is a zoom shot.
|Pair of eyes looking down and left...|
either a face full of shaving cream or
a surgical mask?

|Face looking down to the right|
at the eagle...may have shades on...
nose...mouth...perhaps an earring?
|Eyes looking down and to the left...|
pointed nose...blowing out white
smoke from each nostril!
