Great encounter yesterday with this incredible creature. Overcast day at the refuge, not too many people, but a lot of migratory birds. Walking the exterior of the main pond, passers by asked if I saw the Eagles in the tree nearby, I hadn’t, and was thankful they pointed me back towards a trail I had bypassed.
I am always amazed at the size of these creature. And also the intimidation factor of those talons.
