Today I was joined on my daily riverside run by a bald eagle. Every time I passed him and got just out of sight, he flew directly over my head to a new perch up ahead. We played this leapfrog game for about two miles. I have never before wished so keenly that my iPod was also a digital camera.
I thought it was rather odd that the squirrels and seagulls didn’t seem fazed by him whatsoever. On the other hand, judging by the piles of feathers I passed coming back to my car, I think he was full.
I’m going to miss these runs so much when I move.
