They've been showing up around here in central NY in increasing numbers.
Saw one while at Fort Ticonderoga. It was late in their season and late in the day. They were closing and we were the last ones left in the fort.
We were standing at the north wall looking out over the battle field that slopes from the woods on the left, gently down to the water far off on our right. A bald eagle took off from a tree top closest to the Fort,.... and with what looked like incredibly wide wing span, slowly glided down toward the water.
We stood watching it in the quiet until it disappeared in the trees at the water's edge.
Easy to see why they call it such a "majestic bird".
