Default Bald Eagle Chilhowee Lake (O T)

A Bald Eagle has been hanging out at Chilhowee Lake between Abrahms Creek and Tabcat Creek. I spotted the adult eagle Saturday perched in a pine tree beside the road. A group of motorcyclists pulled over to observe the eagle.
We watched the eagle fly across the lake. Very majestic bird.

Rivergal, my picture was actually taken along Tellico Lake. There's a giant dead tree at the Toqua boatramp on the west side of the lake and about every third time I drive by it, there's a bald eagle in it. I run the Lakeshore trail along the east side of the lake as well ad the loop trail inside fort Loudon State Park and routinelly see eagles. About 3 weeks ago, there were 5 mature eagles all within a 100 yard stretch in the state park. It was a sight to see. Of course I was running and didn't have a camera with me.
