A Bald Eagle
The other afternoon Caleb came running in from outside for us all to come out and see a bald eagle that was sitting beside the small pond. The bird was HUGE (though it's hard to see that perspective from the photo), and we discovered it was eating one of the beautiful Muscovy ducks that frequent our farm. E. got a few photos (this being the best) before the bird got too disturbed by our presence and flew off. It was a sight to see as that majestic bird lifted off on his magnificent wings and flew to a nearby tree along the creek. What a treat!
