Bald Eagle Landing

We saw two eagles before finding a place to park and watch.  One perched in a tree near a nest I know of, and a second had staked out a tree on an island near downtown Sauk City.  Fortunately for me, that bird got most of the attention and few people drove through by us.

This was the first bird to fly close enough for me to try and take some pictures.  Two other eagles had already perched about a quarter mile apart and this eagle flew to a spot between them.

It glided in for a landing.

It hung out on the log for about ten minutes, when…

And that’s when the fun began, because, as I mentioned before, two other eagles had staked out this part of the river.
