We were out on this beautiful January day heading towards a nature reserve in Parkville like when I noticed this bald eagle perched about 30 feet up in a tree next to the Missouri river. Simply and elegantly beautiful these creatures! They demand attention. I was more than happy with the discovery as I jumped out of the van and ran across the tracks to snap a few shots. Always bring your camera! As if that wasn't enough of a rare encounter, on the way home my wife noticed an owl perched on the side of the highway on a road sign. Another rare encounter! I am a happy man!
