    Birthday Baldies

    Got out shooting a little bit yesterday on my birthday, I saw a few eagles, which is what I was after, but they were typically pretty far away so only a few salvageable images, even with large crops on 420mm.

    Farmington Bay. They've usually got a good population of them this time of year, but there are more that comes after they do the carp kill, but I'm not sure if they'll do it this year or not.

    no, its on the salt lake, not utah lake. its up on the east shore by farmington. The division of wildlife usually conducts an annual carp kill to control the parasitic carp population, and it brings in tons of eagles and other birds, but they had concerns with west nile last year when all those eagles were found dead, but I think they traced it back to a diseased bunch of grebes that the eagles were eating, and not the fish, so they might do it this year, but they're not sure yet last I heard.

    I think the eagle day is Feb 14th this year

    its like a marshy area. I'm not sure what kind of salt content it has, its different than the rest of the SL though, so I would guess its low salt or something.

    I know they been trying to clean up Utah lake forever and kill off trash fish. Man it'd be fun to watch those eagles I don't see them very much

    cruise up to farmington bay, they're up there this time of year every year, and its free, you just drive across the dike and they're all around, bring binoculars though, or a spotting scope or something, sometimes they're pretty far away. from the sound of things they're planning the fish kill sometime before the 14th.

    It's nice to see you using the 300mm with a 1.4 TC. Those heavy crop photos look like the photos I can capture. That makes me feel better knowing that it's more my crop (factor) that is killing my IQ than my equipment.
    Still awesome shots of baldies.

    Why didn't you take out the 500mm?
