bald eagle in woodstock?!

20131227-094232.jpg Yesterday, as we dug out from our mounds of Christmas goodies, my son spotted a bald eagle in a tree on waverly woods golf course. We went on a walk to see if it was plucking fish from the pond on 99 & dorchester but - no sightings.

This is a first for us, we spot hawks regularly. Perhaps this is a result of being close to the hoco conservancy. Whether its a migratory passerby or a new western howard county resident, keep your eyes & binocs at the ready!
