Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle up close and personal in Baywood Park.

Ashala, Marlin and I chased this one from Butte Drive to Mitchell (with a futile stop-over at Sweet Springs) then on to Baywood near 1st and Santa Maria where we finally caught up to him for a nice long look. Even with these Fearsome Looking Talons! a Gull and Crow dive-bombed the eagle for quite awhile...the eagle vocalized his displeasure but did not budge from his perch.
