Lake Springfield - where bald eagles fly

After breakfast we visited a couple of flea markets, and then went down to Lake Springfield to check for ice with some kayaking in mind later in the week. We took a brief walk up onto the bluffs where we were luckily enough to see a bald eagle, which took a bird or squirrel for its lunch. Ginger got a very close look at as it flew by the bluff - I missed it as I had my head in the camera. Later on, thanks to the generosity of one of the several birdwatchers down by the lakeside, we had a chance to see two bald eagles up close in a spotting scope.
