Of Course I had to find a Bald Eagle.
I wear the “Bird Nerd” badge proudly among my friends. I am easily distracted by the flutter of wings in the trees or bushes as we hike or drive. While driving along the Hoback River into Jackson I caught movement out of the corner of my eye. When I looked over, I made the call…”Bald Eagle”.

I can’t help but getting happy when I see a majestic Eagle in the wild like this one.
