Eagle on Big Bald Lake
November 21, 2009
Where else should a Bald Eagle be, but on Big Bald Lake?
I captured a photo just as this lovely Eagle was ready to take flight from a rock we aptly refer to as Bird Rock, in the middle of the lake, off our beach.
I'm sorry the photo is not absolutely clear, but the shot was a little hurried!
I saw an Eagle a few summers ago in the air, but this is a first for viewing at lake level and right from the window of my home.
I'm not sure whether it is just passing through on migration or hunting out a new homestead (hopefully the latter!). I believe it may have been a 'sub adult', judging by size?
I will certainly be watching for another siting!
Wow Kathy, what a lovely picture and story - I too, hope that you are going to see more Bald Eagles at your lake! Thank you for sending this to us, I'm sure our readers will enjoy this.
