Worth the Wait

How fortunate I am to have bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) so close to home in Westchester County, New York.

Eagles have been more visible in the area for several years now. I spend a lot of time trying to catch them in action. In this photo, I watched patiently for the eagle to take flight. These birds of prey can sit for hours so it can be quite the waiting game.

I think it was worth the wait.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This photo was chosen as one of the top submissions for Wild View’s A Pop of Color assignment. Congratulations! Enter our new assignment Let Your Creativity Fly, a tribute to birds of the season.
