Before going out on my walk today I felt this strong urge to bring my camera with me. It was cloudy and a bit rainy so I wouldn’t normally. But I had this strong feeling inside that there was a bald eagle out there waiting for me. So I brought the camera and sure enough, less than a mile away, atop one of the tallest trees in the neighborhood was a bald eagle, just sitting there. It looked at me multiple times while ignoring red winged blackbirds that kept pestering it. They’d literally fly past the eagle and tap him with their little talons (brave little guys) trying to scare him off, but the eagle, suffering the occasional nudge, just sat there, immovable and proud.
Here are a couple photos:
