Eagle in the Snow

Eagle in the Snow

Many Utahns are not aware that our state plays host to many eagles in the winter months, and that the Farmington Bay Wildlife Management Area is one of their favorite spots. The abundance of carp and other food sources can attract up to several hundred Bald Eagles.

This year I went out with the Wasatch Camera Club. It was a fun excursion with a friendly group of photographers. We saw about 20 Bald Eagles, with many being fairly close to our vantage points. The eagles were quite tolerant of the cars, but would move when people got out on foot. Days like today really make you wish for that 800mm lens.
