Bald eagle sighting

Driving home through the small town of Oakland on my way back from Winter Garden, I spotted this American Bald Eagle perched on top of the Oakland water tower.

The water town is located behind the Oakland Post Office and Town Hall next to the bike trail.

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.
