Bald Eagles are known to frequent the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, so be sure to keep your eyes open.

If you do see them, they will most likely appear as they do in photo 2: almost invisible and perched on a barren tree in the middle of the refuge - or very close to the middle.

To really see them, you will have to use some telephoto equipment.

The way I got the view you see in photos 1 and 3 was to put the small lens of the digital camera against the viewing lens of the spotting scope that is in the nature center and overlooks the refuge. This provides better telephoto ability than anything you would probably want to carry around with you.

However, you have to be very sharp eyed to see them first! What you see in photo 2 is easy to overlook.
