Eagle and Ruddy Duck

Walking around the lake this morning about 8:30, a juvenile bald eagle was fishing in the lake, which made the canada geese a bit agitated. He caught 3 fish while I watched, though he threw one of them back for some reason. I had my camera with me, but most of the action shots are too far away to see much. At one point, he flew over my head and let me get a slightly closer shot:

I also spotted a lone female Ruddy Duck on the lake, another first for me.

I also forgot to mention that last week there was a Belted Kingfisher hanging out around the island for several days. I spotted it on thursday and sunday.
