Eagle-Eye Eugenia

Following the "blizzard" of Dec. 27, 2012, we decided to check out the boathouse.  As we entered the parking lot, Gina noticed a huge bird in a tree top.  I happened to have my camera with me so I hoped I'd be able to get a few pictures.  I had a feeling I'd probably spook the bird when I stopped - and I did.  But I got lucky.

That's the Land Lighthouse (at the foot of Hess Avenue) on the left & the bird in the tree on the right.

Here's a closer look at the bird.

And yet another, zoomed in even more.

Sure enough, it spooked pretty quicky.

Naturally, the camera wasn't set to take a rapid series of pics.

But I did get these two that were worth saving.

This was the 6th eagle we saw "in the wild" in 2012!
