This is not really about woodworking. But, it does have something to do with trees. Plus, I thought a few people might enjoy seeing some of the pictures.

There is a lake on the property, in front of the building where I work. The property is very close to the Forestry Managed area in Northeast Alabama.

Recently, we notice we had a new neighbor that moved in:

Yesterday, we managed to capture a few pictures of one of the new residents.

Looks like fish for lunch. It is difficult to see the fish, but notice the ripples where our new friend plucked it out of the water. It happended so fast, the geese did not even react.

After lunch, he gave us a nice little modeling session. He spotted us with the camera and did not seem to care that we were out there.

Thanks for letting me share, even if it is a little off topic for the forum.

I LOVE those guys.

Could stare at them all day.

A few of them like the lake, at the Park, a half-mile from my house.

Majestic.

Fantastic Tim, I would absolutely love to see something like that right out my window.
Like Grizz, I haven’t seen many eagles since my time in Alaska. I got some wonderful pictures up there.
Thanks for sharing…..

Thought I would add this as well, it is a raptor site with a 24/7 video cam of eagles in a nest.
Decorah Eagles
I check it out quite often and right now there are a pair of eagles just getting their feathers….

Thanks for posting these great pics. I think everyone loves eagles. We have quite a few at Keystone Lake near Tulsa and they have spawned a whole industry: eagle watching. I keep hoping a pair will move in at my place to eat some koi.
