On the way to town the other day, I was looking out across a field. I saw a large bird with a white head. It was pretty far away, I couldn't really make it out. I was sure though that it was an eagle. That night I told my husband that I was sure I had seen an eagle that day. We never see eagles around here so he said it was probably just a big chicken hawk. Well, this morning on my way to town I brought my camera along. When I arrived to the place I had seen it, I slowed down, it wasn't there. I decided to go on to town but take back roads. When I was about 5 miles away, I decided I was not going to see it. Well, just as I decided it was gone, guess what I saw. I glanced across a field, across a pond and scanned the trees. I saw a big white dot in the trees. I made my lens zoom as far as possible and looked through the camera, and this is what I saw. What are the chances that I would be over 5 miles from where I originally saw it the first time and I see it again? I could have turned on any gravel road, but there it sat on the path I decided to take.
The picture is not great, but what do you think it is, an eagle or a chicken hawk?
Edit to say, I showed my husband the picture last night. He agrees, it is an eagle. I told him it was.
