Large bald eagle swooped up over my windshield this morning while crossing the Hopewell Bridge over the Little Miami River, spread his wings and pulled up before coming to a perched rest at the top of that great Sycamore tree next to the bridge. Another large bird was already perched at the top – presumably another bald eagle but with the light this one was in dark profile so I can’t confirm. They were still perched together when the traffic light turned green and I headed for the highway. What an incredible sight on the way to work! (10:20 am)
(I saw one high overhead last year at the same location but not as close. Today was something I’ll always remember!)
Shot taken from traffic light at Hopewell and Loveland-Madiera Rd looking back at Sycamore tree. Not great for identifying the birds but good for location reference.
