How does a Bald Eagle drink with that big beak? Well, let’s put it this way: you don’t want to be next to the bird.

What you also may wonder is what happened next? When this Eagle spotted me creeping up on her yesterday, she pivoted and flew in the opposite direction; thereupon, I took a magnificent image (at a shutter speed of 1/3200th of a second) of an Eagle Butt in flight, which would be of use only if the bird needed a colonoscopy.
