Not for granted

Here in Seattle, inside the city limits, it is not unusual to see these guys - yes that is a pair of Bald Eagles sitting on the marina breakwater, with the Olympic Mountains in the background.  What is  unusual about this is that the seagulls are not harassing them.  Perhaps there are no nests nearby, or perhaps seagull nests are empty this time of year.

One should never let their surroundings become so familiar that they get taken for granted.

Beautiful picture. It's funny that you mention the seagulls harassing them. We have a pair of eagles that drop in every now and then, and I always know they are back because the starlings go completely insane trying to drive them away.
