Thanks, John. Adult bald eagles can be a challenge to photograph up here, especially when the sunlight is coming in at a low, horizontal angle; such as at sunset or in the late fall and early winter. Over expose and you wash out their bright white heads. Under expose and their bodies are just an amorphous black mass.
I haven't been doing much bird photography lately due to our limited daylight hours and seasonal gloom & doom, which I refer to collectively as the Dark Ages. People think it rains a lot in the Seattle area. We get less total precipitation than many parts of the country, but we can go for weeks without seeing the sun even though it doesn't rain.
There has not been much activity at the marsh other than the resident herons and a few green-winged teals. There have not been been many winter visitors at the marina and fishing pier either for the second winter in a row. Two Anna's hummingbirds have been providing some avian action at my back deck.
