Bonus 9-4-12 Bald Eagle



Behind our cabin in Estes Park there is a dead tree on which a 
bald eagle roosts usually late in the afternoon. There is another 
dead tree on the north shore of Lake Estes where he can be 
seen devouring the fish that he has caught in the lake. He is
affectionately called "Baldy" by local birders.
He is named Haliaeetus leucocephalus which is  sea (halo)
eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head (cephalus).


My son Gordon caught him with his mouth open.


In flight he is 


breathtaking..
