Bald Eagle At Rest

On a hot July afternoon, a bald eagle, winded from hunting prey, alights in a cottonwood tree to rest and catch his breath in the heat.

We saw this guy/girl on a recent trip to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge over in Missouri. We see eagles there a lot in the winter, but not as often in the summer, so this was a treat.

Have a great day everyone!
