Bald Eagle (Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve, Hillsboro, OR)

This isn't exactly a pet photo but so appropriate for the Fourth of July. This was taken at the Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve in Hillsboro, OR during the unveiling of the eagle's nest exhibit. This bald eagle is a resident of the Oregon Zoo in Portland. They also had a golden eagle and other raptors on display that day with handlers. They are truly beautiful in person, I had never been so close to one before.

This spring, as I was driving to school, a bald eagle swooped down right in front of my car, and I swear, his feathers grazed my car's hood. It's the first time that I saw one in the wild. I still get excited when I think of it. The road I was driving on was next to a river, and he landed on the bank. I pulled over just to watch him. We were only a few yards apart, and he kept his eye on me, but didn't make an effort to leave. I was both amazed and in awe at the same time. They are such remarkable creatures.
