I first spotted this Bald Eagle sitting on the rocks in the water, across the river. Shortly thereafter, it flew into a tree on the far side where it remained perched and vigilant looking down at the river.
And then faster than you could say American Bald Eagle, it was off and down.
I have seen eagles hunt duck on the river before but this was my first experience watching one fish. And what a fish!
Unfortunately it only managed to catch the fish with one talon. Probably due to the fish's size and squirming, the fish dropped back into the river much to my dismay (and much more the eagle's as well).
After a few flying tours, the eagle landed back on the tree. And then some time after, it flew back upstream hopefully to have better fortune with another fish.
