SEATTLE -- The chirping of bald eagles -- that's the sound Marty Reilly wakes up to in his West Seattle home these days.

At the window, he watches the eagles put on an aerial show that long time neighborhood residents say is much larger than they've ever seen before.

"Maybe two or three," said Reilly, "not eight or ten, definitely."

Reilly believes the eagles are all from an extended family. Experts say that's a possible theory. But they also say this is the time of year when young eagles are checking out potential mates and honing their hunting and fighting skills.

For West Seattle residents it's just a great opportunity to watch nature in full force, right off the back deck.
