Visitors and volunteers brave the rain on Highway 530 bridge in Rockport Washington, Satuirday, December 22, 2012, while eagles put on a show below.
The sun makes an appearance at Sutter Creek Rest Area (Milepost 100 on State Route 20) on Sunday, December 23, 2012 near Rockport, WA.
Eagles were lively on the Skagit River last weekend. Many people braved the rain on Saturday to see the birds pulling salmon carcasses out of the water and feeding on them. When the sun came out on Sunday, suddenly it was eagle bath time. They put their heads and bodies under water and shake all around. Very fun to watch!
