A routine walk to the mailbox took an unexpected turn as a pair of immature Bald Eagles put on a show right over my yard. Fortunately my camera was nearby and I was able to catch all the action.

The first one that flew into view ended up on the power lines over 100 yds away. It made for an aesthetically unpleasing ID shot.
A short while later while parked on Schoenher a bird landed right across the road from my car and alternated between posing and hawkwatching.

Many birders previously reported the bird at the DNR boatlaunch off of West Stevenson Lake Road. When I got to that spot the bird was nowhere to be found. Luckily another birder came by and directed me to the location where the bird was being seen from Birch Rd on the most eastern edge of the southern portion of the lake. Here are the locations marked on a Google Map

This afternoon I noticed an Osprey flying over my yard. Luckily my camera was handy and I was able to get a couple of shots as it flew across the patch of sky not blocked out by trees.

Drove across the state this morning to the shores of Lake Huron unsuccessfully chasing a Fork-tailed Flycatcher. According to more punctual birders I missed the Fork-tail by 2 hours. In the three hours that I searched for the target bird I saw some more pedestrian neotropic migrants.
