Eagle-eyed Everett photographer captures nature in action

EVERETT — Kent Hricziscse was relaxing on his deck on a hot sunny day last week when the attack began.

A bald eagle dove out of the sky, talons aimed at a family of ducks swimming on Silver Lake. The eagle missed, but wheeled around and tried again.

Hricziscse gasped, and ran for his camera. While Hricziscse clicked away, the duck family he had spent days observing from his lakeside house came under siege.

"It's shaping up to be a good year," said Pacific Salmon Commission chief biologist Mike Lapointe.

A baby eagle that would not have survived on its own has been moved to a new nest in Nanoose Bay, where it has been adopted by two adults with a chick of their own.

A family discovered the injured eaglet on the West Coast Trail late last month. The bird had a sprained leg, likely from falling out of its nest. The family, stranded by bad weather in the boat-accessed area, fed the bird raw hamburger to keep it alive.
