Sometimes, the best things are right in front of you. Local food -- local entertainment and no ticket line ups (or over the hill rock stars who should know better). Up Sheffield Mills way the farmers feed the eagles chickens. The eagles hang around and it becomes a huge event for two weekends. There are two dedicated spots where this happens. People with really big lenses on their cameras, and really big snow pants come from far away and this is what we see.
A juvenile gets impatient (don't they often?) and gets the party going.
The smaller birds are seagulls, they have no fear of the eagles.
It was a great day!
