The tower is tall and the eagle must like the panoramic view it affords because whenever I drive by, I often see one perched on top of the tower.

In addition to the view it affords, the tower is located close by an aerie - an eagle nest - that the birds have built in one of Oakland's many giant oak trees.

No matter where I see them - perched on a tall platform, soaring through the sky or at our own lake in Groveland - it always gives me a special thrill to catch sight of this magnificent bird.
