Did not notice the Bald Eagle right away, perched twenty meters from the ground on a dead Douglas fir. I was helped by the calls of a Black-billed Magpie, it was trying to harass the eagle. I tried to get a clear picture of the eagle but the branches were in the way. So I decided to wait and see if it would take off. I figured finding it in an area where there are not spotted and the harassing it was getting from the magpie, it was not going to be too long before it would take to air. So I waited and stepped back, before long it was flying.
