I took my wife to a nearby wetlands area to check on some wild swans and an eagle nest we saw last Tuesday. One Bald Eagle was sitting in a tree a long way off, see the header. It took off and flew almost over our head and I was able to catch it in flight. They are pretty fast when they want to be. To see a Bald Eagle in flight is breathtaking.
