Bird of Prey

Perched in the topmost branches of a spruce tree, the Bald Eagle surveys his surroundings.  It's a matter of survival for these central interior birds.  During the winter months, they must also look to the land for sustenance (rabbits, squirrels, grouse).

A few snowflakes were swirling down, and it was overcast when I took this photo at about ten thirty yesterday morning. I first saw the eagle from a distance and then I had to get closer.
