Bald Eagles at Lower Klamath NWR

Today at Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge on the Oregon/California border, most of the lakes were frozen over. Geese and ducks were forced to use these open areas, and that made it easy for the wintering Bald Eagles to keep an eye on them. I counted 30 eagles in the area, along with dozens of other hawks and falcons. Snow-covered Mt. Shasta provided the backdrop for the life-and-death drama unfolding on center stage.
