John Driscoll reminds us this morning that we have bald eagles in Humboldt County. I often forget about them because they're not all that common.
I've only seen one in all the years I've been up here. It was sitting on top a power pole on the east side of the freeway opposite the Humboldt Bay Power Plant. It was an immature bald eagle like the one in the picture.
That was back in the early eighties. I haven't seen once since.
