Eagle Scout

Guess who's back in town after migrating away all summer? I walked out of the shop after work today, and I heard a lot of bird noises, all of them chattering away on top of each other. I didn't think much of it until I heard hawk noises, so then I started looking. I spotted an osprey flying around in tight circles near the cell tower across the street, but he soon headed away from there. Then I spotted something sitting on the cell tower. At first I though it had to be the mate of the osprey, but I looked closer and decided the head was just too white. Sure enough, it was a bald eagle. I watched him for about 15 minutes, catching him in mid-flight with a bite of dinner at one point. This is the first time I've gotten a shot of an eagle on the wing, and it's not too bad.
