Most Magnificent and Free

Look who flew in for a snack.  There are always scraps on the compost.  Some of these snacks are apparently more appetizing to an eagle than a crow. I was thrilled to see this well dressed fella.
 He gave me the ' Eagle Eye ' for the longest time before finally~
 dropping by for a snack on meat scraps.  Look closely and you can see the scraps on his bottom beak and you can see he has more under his left foot.  
( click on any photo for a closer look )
 I could have watched this majestic bird of prey all day.
Check out the curve on the end of his beak.  No wonder they can rip and tear at their next meal the way they do., masters at survival.
My only regret was not having my camera ready or being in the right place when he finally took to the sky.  I'm amazed at one of North America's largest and most magnificent birds and how he glides so easily and free.  He will always be our nation's most admirable leaders.  God keep him strong for us all.

Thanks for stopping by and
God Bless America

Everytime I see the Eagle, I see strength and survival. You have done WELL. this is a great post and narrative. Yep, a magnificent Bird and symbol of freedom.

Love from Florida, where we also get to see the Eagle, but VERY rarely since we aren't on the water much anymore. They are great fishers!!!

Wow! How neat to have an eagle land in your yard. That would be a first here, though once in a great while I see on fly over the house. We drive sixty miles down to the Big River (Mississippi) where they gather by the hundreds in the winter...;)

Oh Dar! Thank you for sharing your beautiful eagle with us. Here in our part of WV we only get a glimpse of them once in a great while, so your pics were such a treat for me!

Hope that this finds you doing well.

Hugs as you prepare for Christmas!

Wow! I never knew they scavenged. Always thought they hunted for food.
