Photo Gallery: Eagles in our Backyard

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The bald eagles in our backyard draw bird-watchers and photographers from all over the area. Sometimes we're lucky enough to meet some of the eagle fans and share stories and photos with them.

Dwight Alton is one of those people; he's a local photographer who's been kind enough to share some of his eagle photos with us. Check out his amazing shots, below:
