A Majestic Surprise

Saturday morning, as I was nearing the end of my morning walk, I caught a glimpse of a large bird flying toward a tree in a nearby yard.

When I looked in that direction, what I saw took my breath. I hurried home (about a five-minute walk), grabbed my camera, jumped in the car and headed back up the street.

This is why:

The bird that I saw flying toward the tree was a second eagle, which landed on the tree beside an eagle already perched there.

I cropped the photo for a closer look.

I’m so glad they were both still there when I returned with my camera.
