There are 2 photos today because I needed to show what I often see on the way home from work and then what it is when I zoom in. This bald eagle has made his home in Middleburg for a number of years and is known by all the locals. Today he was sitting on his usual perch but was being bombarded and screeched at by a mocking bird who kept fluttering around him, keeping this up for about 10 minutes until he flew off. She followed and they made a large circle before they both landed back in the tree with the eagle deciding he was just going to ignore her. I assumed he must have eaten her young. She kept up her harassment for about another 15 minutes before giving up and flying away. The eagle remained sitting there, completely unflustered.
