I spotted an eagle yesterday morning down by Oakledge in Burlington. While that was great in itself, the best part was that the eagle was being harassed by a ring-billed gull. I've seen this in lots of other species, but never ring-billed gulls. And it was just a lone gull playing the pest. It kept swooping down and scolding the eagle, until eventually the eagle flew off with the gull following it.
