Over the years I’ve seen a few Bald Eagles in our area, just flying overhead. But today a Bald Eagle swooped in and landed in a pine tree across the street.

It was carrying prey of some sort–I couldn’t tell what it was, but the eagle was picking at it and eating it.

I’ve seen Bald Eagles fly by overhead a few times, but this is the first time one actually landed where I could see it.

I watched it eating up in the pine tree, and I was impressed with its heavy beak and its thick, strong legs and feet.

Then the eagle straightened up and looked around. A few moments later it flew away.
