An Aerie of Eagles

Photographer: Liron Gertsman

The annual salmon run on the British Columbia coast brings one of my favourite spectacles in nature: a huge gathering of Bald Eagles! Tens of thousands of them are drawn to the rivers and streams of southwestern British Columbia, where they scavenge on the carcasses of spawned-out salmon. I've visit the gathering for 8 years. On one particular day, I spent the morning waiting on the edge of a river. My patience was rewarded when an eagle flew down to a salmon carcass washed up in some grass. Eagles often watch other eagles to find out where food is, so it wasn’t long before an "aerie" of seven eagles (six of which were in this image) were on the ground, squabbling over the carcass.
