Two Bald Eagles - a male and a female - continue to be seen over the Gualala River.

Rick and I went to Gualala Point Regional Park this morning, hoping to see the Bald Eagle pair. No luck, darn it. We stopped to talk to a visitor from Michigan and he related that he saw one yesterday. In fact, it flew 15 feet over his head!

Phil Wendt recently photographed the pair.

In an exciting development, the male Bald Eagle was seen gathering nesting materials. We are wishing and hoping this pair builds a nest by the river. The biggest concern is that people might get too close in their desire to photograph them. So stay a safe distance away, using your longest lens. We don't want to scare them or disturb them in any way.

To see more of Phil's photography, including more photos of these Bald Eagles, here is the link to his website:

And thanks to Phil for allowing me to share these photos with you here.

So so cool. I was up over the weekend with my friend Kate. We saw one of them flying toward the Ocean over the river. The wing span was huge. Simply stunning! I hope they decide to stay for years and years!
