From the local newspaper:> The boundary between the Pacific and North American plates runs underwater along the west coast of Haida Gwaii, and is B.C.'s equivalent of the San Andreas Fault in California.

Hi Dmitry, very little this far north, just about what you see here but the waves got higher the further south you were.
Exactly,Nawitka, I was trying to show that an event of this magnitude has far reaching effects, even right down to the totally trivial choice of perches for a bird thousands of miles away.
Nice catch Guy. I heard there was a 'wave watcher' in Hawaii that wasn't so lucky, but I guess their surge was about 4-5 feet high.
Greetings from Spain
Excellent. Have you seen any free falling mating yet this year? That would be something to capture.
I am still waiting for the event. :-)
Thanks Randy, Kanukayyu, Nicky, emzet, Peter and Derek.
Yeah Randy, certainly not to be trifled with.
Haven't seen it this year Derek, and the times I have seen it they were too high up.
Very nice shot. LIKE. Greetings from Czech Republic, Olda.
Fabulous, dramatic photo Guy, you've done it again.
Lucky Bird! + like ;)

So today I'm wondering if there was an eagle in Japan displaced by the tsunami from The Great Haida Gwaii Quake of 2012!
Wondering if the aftershocks are disturbing your otherwise peaceful community. Love your talent in bringing out the best visuals.
We owed them one, kamalyn.
Thanks BCsnowbirds, not really, gives us something to talk about.
That and the parade up the hill
