It does appear as if this regal eagle was a bit surprised by my appearance. In truth, her and her mate are two of the most tolerant Bald Eagles I have ever encountered. They frequent a suburban park, often choosing to hang out in the trees along the trail. People stop and marvel at them, walk almost right up to their roost, and they never care, largely ignoring the bipedal creatures below. This was taken just over a month ago. Soon after, she began occupying their nest and with any luck it won’t be long before eaglets come along.
