Pictures of eagles and seagulls taken on February 15th, 2020 (34 pictures)

On February 15th, 2020, the Mass. Audubon Society held an eagle festival:

Eagle Festival Link

When winter returns to Merrimack Valley, so do the Bald Eagles. Every year we host a grand event marking their return, and we hope you'll join us in Newburyport and Amesbury to celebrate these very special winter residents.

My brick and mortar store (Hunts Photo and Video in Melrose, Massachusetts) held a tour where guides would take photographers to places where eagles were likely to show up.

We didn't see that many eagles, but there were a lot of seagulls in the last location we went to.

At the same time, my main camera company (Olympus) was offering free loaner gear of their new cameras for a few days in conjunction with Hunts. I borrowed two cameras (Olympus E-m1 mark III and Olympus E-m5 mark III) and one lens (Olympus 12-200mm) for the eagles festival. After the festival was over, I bought the E-m5 mark III, and a little later I bought the 12-200mm lens.
