Bald Eagle

Haliaeetus leucocephalus

I am always in awe whenever I see a Bald Eagle soaring.  It is a truly reverential sight.  This morning as I was walking on the path that leads into the woods, I looked up to see one of the Sinkut Lake eagles circling high above me.  He did this over and over, and I, of course, was focused entirely on this marvelous scene.  He finally came down and landed in a spruce tree where, to my utter surprise, another eagle was already perched.  I hadn't seen this eagle at all!  The result of this commotion was that the second eagle essentially took over the perch, and the other one immediately flew away with a loud squawk.
