Today I saw a Bald Eagle on the Beach

Years ago we nearly lost the American bald eagle, but now we see them on the shores of the Great Lakes.  We saw one this morning trying to carry a very large lake trout that had washed up on the beach.

The eagle didn’t get it though.  A flock of herring gulls chased it away.
