Living With Wildlife by Tim Green
The eagles of Rabbit’s Foot Canyon perch at the top of the Eagle Cliffs between the entrance to the landfill and the exit to Porter Creek. They watch the highway carefully, waiting for roadkill. It’s not uncommon to find five or more spread out along the area.
The younger eagles (without the white heads) are skittish, but some of the mature ones don’t seem at all upset by the close proximity of people with cameras. They know they can easily swoop away before any threat develops, so why not pose for photos?
These photos were taken with a simple waterproof camera with no special lenses.
Camera: Pentax WG-III
