Bald Eagle

Found this guy hanging out by one of the few bits of open water left in Ft. Collins last week. I was really surprised to see a actual wild bald eagle less than a half mile from my house! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get any of the great close-ups that I’ve gotten on other birds, because this eagle was on private, fenced off, property. I think I saw another bald eagle in a tree behind this one, but she was just too far away to shoot. I’ll keep an eye out for them though, maybe I’ll find them on some of the surrounding public land someday.
