Roadside eagles (20 January 2017)

Eagle #1

Eagle #2

Today, while driving home from work, we saw a pair of mature Bald Eagles in a field just north of the Shepherd village limits.  Both eagles were on the ground when we drove by.  We stopped long enough to observe them for a few minutes and take a couple photographs. 

The pictures did not turn out that well due to the distance and the dreary weather/poor light.  While we were watching several other cars stopped along the road behind.  Eventually one of the eagles flew away while the other remained on the ground.  I reported the sighting on eBird and found out that at least one eagle had been seen in almost exactly the same location yesterday.
