Walking along the road here one day, which follows a large creek, my friend and I heard a big rustling right to the left of us in the brush. We turned to look, and about 6 feet away up rises a Bald Eagle, right at our eyeball height, and flies off along the creek path. It was HUGE, and it was AMAZING.

Yellow-throated Vireo

One of the few kinds of North American birds where the male also incubates eggs and broods young. Go Vireo!
