Yesterday morning I made a trip to the Charleston City Lake near my home to see how the American Bald Eagles were doing. When I arrived I noticed that the lake was still iced over. I sat for a few minutes watching the sun beginning to rise and I thought that I would travel to the Paris City Lake with the hopes of seeing the Eagles catching fish. I left and drove about a mile and then changed my mind and went back to the Charleston Lake. I have no idea why I changed my mind but I’m glad I did because it turned out to be a great morning to photograph the Eagles at this lake.
The most exciting thing to witness were the Bald Eagles and the Great Blue Herons competing for something that was on or under the ice. (I think the Great Blue Heron was winning the Argument.)
