Subject: [CT Birds] Bald Eagle: Hamden, Waite bridge & causeway Lake Whitney, Jan 12, 2020
Bald eagle is always striking. Some digiscoped photos on eBird, if you want to check my aging. It flew over the bridge then landed near the north coast and played in the water some.

> Bald Eagle 1 Third year, I think: head whitish, but not bright; body generally dark, beak yellow. It flew overhead, over Waite St., & a moment's thought was Black Vulture, as hint to tone of head color. It then landed far out near the upper shore. These shots through Viper scope @ 60x, plus iPhone 7 zoom (Phone Skope connector.)
