My husband Ron and I arrived at Hawk Cliff around a quarter past nine this
morning and were the only ones around when two magnificent bald eagles flew
over at 9:35 and 9:45 respectively. The first was so close that I got fairly
decent hand-held shots with a 200mm lens on my camera! The second was
silhouetted by the bright sun. It was thrilling for us to see these
magnificent raptors so close.
