This was taken near Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho the day after Christmas. Bald eagles migrate through the area this time every year. This was the first year I went to see them. Amazing birds! This was the "big daddy" of the group and he was perched watching the entire scene, including all of us photographers!
