    Dear Eagle Eye Nye Guy,

    I have posted this sighting on the sightings board but wanted to send the
    pic I took, foggy as it is, for reference. It is early in the season and
    there has already been alot of eagle activity. We have a better camera lens
    this year and hope to get some better shots.

    Re; the challenge question- How does an eagle catch a duck? We are hoping
    that it can only be done in flight. We have ducks and they are right
    beneath and between the eagles nest and perch. Never have they tried to
    catch one of our ducks. In fact, we suspect that the eagles presence has
    provided protection for our ducks. We have lost many ducks to cayotes and
    only two ducks to hawks and those losses occured when Bonnie and Clyde were
    off on their river fishing trip in late Sept.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share our distraction.



    Greetings from Puget Sound. Our resident eagles, Bonnie and Clyde have been
    very active in the last week and have cleaned up their nest. Last night we
    spotted a traveling female circling over Bonnie's favorite perch. Bonnie
    called to her with calm chirps and barks until Clyde, (sitting a couple
    hundred yrds away on the nest),gave a high pitch cry of disapproval. Bonnie
    sprang from her perch at a high speed toward the traveler. After an
    agressive tangle of talons the traveler left the area. However, this
    morning she was back and perched right outside our kitchen window.
