Then in the 90s they required power lines to have roosts above the wires so birds didn't get electrocuted, and other protections began to take hold, and now I can go down to the river and see a few of them, pretty much any day until March, when they'll move to higher ground. Right now they're stalking newborn lambs, etc. so they come in close to town. Biggest threat to them is still lead poisoning from eating dead animals/birds that were shot. 

It's still a thrill to see them. Charlie got a photo of one in town a couple of weeks ago. Hanging out by the grain silos, probably picking off pigeons. 

Sailing into Sitka, Alaska from Juneau on the ferry our last trip up there in 2006. Coming out of the Peril Strait, every 500 yards, there were the white heads of Bald Eagles in the trees lining the channel. My friend, who lived in Sitka at that time, told us they're becoming pest... of all things. 
We watched in the evening, out from his house overlooking Thimbleberry Bay... bald eagles catching salmon . Some would latch onto a fairly big fish and would have to swim to shore for the meal. They're everywhere up there.
Even down here in South California, they're showing up in the local mountains. And reproducing. There's a camera on a nest up in Big Bear showing the latest results.

Lead was banned in shotgun shells in 1991. But... https://ca.audubon.org/news/wh...

It’s always a thrill to see a mature bald eagle, like the one I saw this afternoon, cruising up the river, fighting the wind, as I approached the bridge from the west. The sunlight gleamed off its white head and tail. Beautiful. 


This guy was hanging out this morning. Normally we have a couple of ravens in the arroyo that chatter to each other while we drink coffee, but today they took a break.   Full flickr links posted because it's worth going over there to check out those meat hooks in the high res versions.

Nice scenery, Dave.  My sister-in-law and her family lived in the Azores about 25-30 years ago; her husband was in the US Air Force and was stationed at a detachment on one of the islands there.
There is still a US Air Force refueling base on Terceira Island. I've met people that had been stationed there and then moved here later.
 
Yeah, I had an uncle stationed there a few times over his Air Force career. Not a bad assignment at all.{#Good-vibes}

Pretty much anything grows like crazy here due to the climate and soil. People get 3 foot Zucchinis and such.. I have a fruit tree ordered on my land with orange trees, banana trees and some various super fruits some that only grow in the Azores. Pineapples grow like crazy here also. I rent my field to a farmer that mows it with a tracker and puts cows there on and off.  Lots of mooing and plenty of cow pats to watch for.

Some random pics of the village and beach area. The village is an easy 1 km walk from home with lots of nice scenery along the way. This is the off season and it rains a bit every other day or so. The temps this time of year are high 50's F at night and mid 60's F daytime. A few bad rain storms with high winds every now and then.  Most average US homes would not survive these storms well.  That's why houses here have 2 foot thick stone walls on older home and new homes are concrete. 99% of house roofs are large terrible-cotta tiles. There is also a nice seawall protected harbor for the fishermen and private boaters.
