The sky over the Haw River, as it exited the Jordan Lake Dam, was full of fishing ospreys, gulls and cormorants.
A piercing whistle alert by one of the ospreys caused every bird in the air to scatter.
I knew the whistle meant there was an eagle coming.
I turned and there was this beautiful 3-year-old bald eagle.
As I tracked the eagle I could hear the continuing alarm calls of the ospreys.
The eagle ignored all of us and crossed to the north and disappeared.
