Bald Eagle

By handlerstudio  
Sailing on the Wye River, we frequently see Bald Eagles. Always easy to spot with their white heads, even from a distance, and with their particular flight, and a surprisingly sweet call (unlike the other large bird often seen--and heard--in similar locations--the Great Blue Heron..squaaaak!)

Not a great technical photo, but it was the best capture of an eagle from this sailing trip. We probably saw at least two dozen eagles on the Wye.

And thanks for the votes and thoughtful comments from yesterday's Osprey.
