No matter what, I'm not much of a morning person. But when someone tells me that one of the best times to photograph an American Bald Eagle at this location is during morning hours, I make the extra effort to drive there to see if I can find some eagles. Especially when the sun is shining! Having to remain in my car due to eagle viewing regulations was constraining, and taking photos in awkward positions quite uncomfortable, but at least the cold of Winter wasn't an issue. Sometimes (morning or not) there just aren't any there, even though word was out that there were many there just the day before. It was a good day for eagles that day, and I tried to capture as many photos as I could while the lighting conditions presented themselves.
