Seagull or Bald Eagle?

I sat by the side of the road for ten minutes today snapping pictures of this Bald Eagle perched on a rock, waiting for him to do something majestic. With my poor distance vision and his inactivity I began to wonder if I was taking oodles of pictures of a big seagull.


It was only when I unloaded the pictures on my computer that I realized my first instinct was correct – he was an eagle. Clearly I needed a bigger lens.
