On an otherwise cloudless day, this lone cloud started drifting over my Walnut Tree. I started taking photos as it continued to move our way.
That’s when I spotted something flying overhead. See it at the upper left of the photo?
Luckily it soared closer. It’s a Bald Eagle!
Bald Eagle wingspans are impressive. Now that the Turkey Vultures are returning sometimes identifying these birds while at a distance can be hard. One easy difference is that Bald Eagles fly very steadily through the air while vultures constantly rock back and forth while riding the air currents.
I turned away from the cloud and saw this Red-tailed Hawk. It had been making a lot of noise (there was actually a pair of them)- probably trying to scare the eagle away.
