Raptor Wednesday

A pair of Bald Eagles immediately after mating.We heard them before we saw them.Haliaeetus leucocephalus make some very un-eagle-like sounds. (That’s because they are usually dubbed over with the calls of Red-tailed Hawks in the professional bullshit business of entertainment.) The sound that alerted us to their presence is described on the Cornell sound page as unlike any other in nature, and it sure puzzled us.This was on Jamestown Island, which has a loop drive around it.
Backyard and Beyond highly recommends this route.
Another Bald Eagle spotted from the road, but rather further away. This is a second year bird.

Is the emperor, in fact, naked? Corey Robin thinks we should stop believing Trump’s bullshit.
