Eagle at the pond.

Another of the raptors we were able to photograph free flying at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy.

Haliaeetus leucocephalus 

The largest Bald Eagle nest on record, in St. Petersburg, Florida, was 2.9 meters in diameter and 6.1 meters tall. Another famous nest—in Vermilion, Ohio—was shaped like a wine glass and weighed almost two metric tons. It was used for 34 years until the tree blew down.
