I was hiking Governor’s Island in Madison yesterday when a bald eagle swooped over my head and landed on one of the trees along the shore.
The eagle hung out on the tree, looking over the lake shore for a LONG time. Consequently, I took a took a lot of photos.
Seeing the wind ruffle their feathers made me notice I was feeling cold from lack of moving, so I thanked the eagle and left. As I hiked back to my car I felt very fortunate to have such a great wildlife sighting. I also took it as a hopeful sign for the start of a new year.
