Shifty the Eagle

Online community member Jim Dubois has sent us another great photo series. He writes:

It’s mating season for the Eagles again, and so Shifty’s doing his best to look good. Eagles mate for life, but you can’t take anything for granted when you’re hoping to get a wing over. There’s a lot of handsome strangers around at the moment, too. Staying regal involves lots of preening, singing, flying from perch to perch in your territory, calisthenics, and looking grand. These were all taken within twenty minutes, the light lately is nuts!

Thanks for sharing these great shots with us, Jim! You can see more of Jim’s photos at
