When we first saw this bird, we thought it was sick or injured. After several conversations with our local Audubon Society eagle experts, we now think it is young and dumb. In the first picture, you can see it in the tree at about 1 oclock from the tip of our chimney. It spent the afternoon there.
In all our years here, we have never seen or heard of bald eagles on the beach, a barrier island. To have one in semi-residence right here on the oceanfront is a real treat, now that we are less concerned for its health. It could be that our garden provides a source of fresh water and eagle delicacies.
