Big Beef Creek: Spread Eagle Bird in Flight

Bald Eagles (and Great Blue Herons) congregate during low tide to feast on Midshipman fish that come to the oyster beds to breed. So, I make a habit around the Memorial days of driving to Big Beef Creek to watch migrating bald eagles - this photo was shot in 2017.
