Bald Eagle at Wilde Lake. I initially stopped to search for a heron that is occasionally at the lake. I spotted him (or her — I have been informed that it is too hard to tell what the sex is without one of each being together) while walking the opposite direction flying over and assumed it was a hawk. When I saw the white on the tail, I knew it was a bald eagle. I hoped he would perch on one of the trees on the opposite side of the dam at the lake. I lost it for a moment while getting my camera out and found him in the spot I just mentioned. There was construction below the dam so I was unable to take the footpath to the opposite side. If I had been a few minutes later to the lake, I would have missed out on this.
