The bald eagles are putting on quite a show, flirting and courting again. These juveniles were practicing courtship rituals–getting ready for their heads to turn white, which happens when bald eagles are mature, at about four years old. All over the Olympic Peninsula, especially near the beaches at this time of year, you can see playful, courting bald eagles.

Thanks to our guest, David, who snapped this photo from the window of his guestroom. It’s way better than any of the pictures I’ve taken this month! ~Bonnie
