Eagle in a white pine.

We were able to get very close to the roadside tree this eagle was sitting in. Usually they fly off if you stop the car.

Haliaeetus leucocephalus

Bald Eagles have been known to play with plastic bottles and other objects pressed into service as toys. One observer witnessed six Bald Eagles passing sticks to each other in midair.
