As this point, I remembered the photography of my friend Marvin DeJong, my main birding buddy and GOAS member. I have been thinking about doing a series to showcase his work, and so I begin that series today with his photos of the Bald Eagle.
One year ago Marvin and his wife Claudia set off for a six month adventure in Alaska. They volunteered at Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka. Across the sound was Mount Edgecomb, an extinct volcano. On the landward side stood the Tongass National Forest and mountainous terrain. One of Marvin's first purchases while there was a digital camera and zoom lens. One of the highlights of last winter was receiving his beautiful photos of the avian life of this rich bioregion.
Be sure to visit again as I continue this series with Marv's waterfowl photos, featuring Barrow's Goldeneye, Harlequin Duck, Long-tailed Duck, and Common Merganser young.
