Counting eagles: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Six Bald Eagles!!

Christmas eve, 2008.  I glance out the office window and see two bald eagles, one adult and one juvenile, perched on a bare tree on the breakwater island a couple hundred feet away, in the middle of the Fox River.

After a couple minutes, I realize that there are 3 more in another tree.  And another one in that tree.  Total:  2 adults and 4 juveniles.  Some days, this apartment is the greatest.  This was one of them.

These shots actually are in color, but I was shooting from inside a dirty window, through driving snow.
