Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) - 10Feb2017 & 17Sep2018

Truly an awesome bird and for the record I think they chose well when our founding fathers picked it as the symbol of our nation over the Turkey.  Plus it would be weird to have a bird as our symbol of freedom that is also the name of a country on the other side of the globe.  

This one was at Pungo but I see them quite often and had an adult fly over my house the other day.  When I went to Alaska in my youth, we used to catch Dolly Varden trout and throw them in the air for Bald Eagles to catch in mid air.

Here is an adult in Wilmington on 17Sep2018.
