A young Bald Eagle caused a lot of excitement yesterday!

Rick and I were sitting outside at Trinks restaurant in Gualala yesterday when a friend saw a Bald Eagle in a snag at the north end of the Gualala River. I had my camera in the car and got this photo using my super zoom.

Thanks to Eddie for allowing me to share the mature Bald Eagle photo.
