It was a beautiful chilly morning up there. Lots of Red-winged Blackbirds were out.
And then there was this Bald Eagle...
I swear Bald Eagles like to mess with me. This guy posed for a car in front of me, then continued to pose for me, and as soon as I started driving slowly up the road he swooped down next to my window and then back up into a tree. Luckily the tree was next to the one path that is open this time of year. So I parked and followed him.
I walked up the path to the bird blind and about 20 seconds later the eagle began swooping down into the water in front of me... It was like he waited till I was ready.
This picture is a bit blurry but makes me laugh:
