There must have been more than a thousand gulls arguing, fishing, screaming, swirling and chasing each other when suddenly everything went silent and there were gulls scattering to all points of the compass. I swear this 3-year-old bald eagle laughed at the panic he had caused. He didn’t stay long before he launched and caused a second panic.

Jordan Lake: First Nest bald eagle.

Momma Kate took time off from doing refurbishing work on her nest to go fishing. I really like the contrast of the early morning dark reflections with her brilliant head and tail making her almost a comet as with power and magnificence she caught her breakfast.
