Mark, that photo of the bald eagle is awesome. Man, I would love to have seen that. Everytime I'm down at Station Road on the tow path I look up at the nests and never see any eagles. You are lucky. Wyatt

I'm not sure what is more awesome your training week after Boston or the Bald Eagle. Both are excellent!

Yep -- that picture is outstanding! Almost *suspiciously* good, since you're a graphic design person who's probably great at image manipulation via PhotoShop and so forth....

Yea you should see my shot of the Polar Bear back in December.

Actually the Eagle must have a baby in the nest. When you get near the nest the eagle squawks at you and circles above. Making a shot easier.
