Bald Eagle at Elkhorn Slough

This photo was taken Saturday morning, Feb. 07, 2014, on Hummingbird Island at the Elkhorn Slough Reserve by George Kellogg. Looks to be carrying a bird.
Bald Eagle
“I was with Elkhorn Slough guide Stanley Dudek and my wife Patti.
Just minutes before, Stanley and I were talking about about no sightings of Bald Eagles in the slough area.
As we started to leave, Patti spotted a large bird taking off from the eucalyptus trees and I had only  seconds to capture several photos of this wonderful bird. It appears it is carrying a rodent or something.
When we first arrived at the sough Patti spotted a large bird out over the slough thinking it might be eagle, but I was telling her it was a vulture, Patti may have been right.
Thank You, George”

  1. While lining up at lunch last December, dozens of students at Ohlone Elementary (on Salinas Road five miles from Elkhorn Slough) saw a pair of Bald Eagles fly just 50 feet from our school buildings. It was amazing! I wish I had my camera at the time: the species is so distinct. Has anyone else seen them recently?
