Sea Eagle

Sea Eagle

On a rocky outcrop in the ocean this wonderful sea eagle sits atop its amazing nest of driftwood.

A sea eagle waits

On a driftwood covered rock

A splash of color

A few weeks ago I traveled by boat to a little island just off our coast. On the far side of the island I spotted this sea eagle on top of its impressive nest built on a rock sitting in the ocean. The amazing quantity of twigs it had used to construct its nest contrasted strangely with the single spot of color in the whole structure from a piece of frayed green rope. Did the eagle see this little splash of color as the “finishing touch” to its home.

We shall never know, but it was a very special thing to be able to take a photo of this rare and majestic bird, victorious in its battle with the elements and the ravages of the sea.
