Raptor Wednesday

IMG_0646Away-way out on the ice, a young Bald Eagle hangs out in New York Harbor. With so much ice on the Hudson last week, the birds were in search of open water and their favored prey, fish. This picture was taken from the pier at Bush Terminal Park; that’s New Jersey in the distance. The bird was earlier eating something and flanked by attendant Greater Black-backed Gulls hoping for leftovers. Earlier that day, a juvenile eagle was seen over Green-Wood by others — this might have been the same bird. IMG_0669I was really hoping for a rah-rah patriotic alignment, but it wasn’t meant to be.
