Nowhere else was it foggy, but when I got to Montour Preserve, I found the lake completely fogged in. After taking the trouble to load the kayak that morning, I decided to go for it. The fog was bound to clear, wasn’t it? And also there were two bald eagles waiting for me across the lake. By the time I paddled across to them, the fog had lifted enough to get some decent pictures. And there was something magical about slipping through the mist across the water, which I had all to myself.
I’m SO glad I decided to put the boat into the foggy lake. My heart soars with the eagle every time I see that 8′ wingspan!
Some cool facts about the Bald Eagle:
They are at the top of the food chain.
Immature eagles are a mixture of dark brown and white, with a black bill. It takes 4 or 5 years for them to acquire a completely white head and tail.
An eagle may have an eye the size of a human’s, but it can see 4x better!
