Driving home from church early this afternoon, I spotted this eagle perched low in a tree on the ocean side of the street. I pulled over with the thought of taking a picture. It flew across the street to someone's yard, landed, picked up the straw you see in it's feet and then flew back across. Perhaps s/he's using the straw as an easy source of nest making material? I think the runner you see in the background (bottom picture) about had a heart attack at the sight of such a huge bird approaching it at close range.
This is blocks from where we live and the jogger you see is on the path I usually run on. I can't wait to show these pictures to the neighbor whose lawn the eagle was sitting on.
Hope you're enjoying your Sunday. xo
