Keeping A Watchful Eye

Ahh, I feel much better now. Through the Georgia birding grapevine we heard there were some Franklin’s Gulls at West Point Lake today. We couldn’t resist the temptation to drive down and check them out.

We spotted them almost immediately, but the star of our day was a beautiful Bald Eagle that flew in and landed just 30-40 feet from where we were standing.

I never get tired of seeing Bald Eagles. Today was just the day I needed to get back into a “normal” birding routine.
