More birds on posts!

Last winter I spotted this pair of bald eagles perched on a tall lamppost near Victoria's breakwater.

Let's look a little closer...

WOW!!!!!!!

(Sometimes I almost forget those are real birds, and not just icons -- I've only seen them in the wild myself a couple of times, and those often from VERY far away!)
I live on Vancouver Island, across from the NW coast of Washington state. We see them quite often here; in particular they like to ride the thermals along the sea, dive for salmon during the run in Goldstream Park, and - unfortunately - gorge themselves on Great Blue Heron chicks (there's a large heronry about a mile from my home).

Even if they do eat baby heron and (the rumour goes) small dogs and cats, they are still utterly magnificent creatures and it's always a thrill to watch one soar overhead.
What a fortunate sighting! Glad to see the close ups.
They are impressive birds.
Wow, this is awesome! Did they choose that perch also for the warmth of the lamps, I wonder?
