OMG: When you're standing under a tree and an eagle comes in for a landing in that tree

Landing eagle

Mary Ellen reports she was standing under a tree by the Charles River in West Roxbury this morning when an eagle landed in the tree, basically right on top of her - maybe the one she saw from a bit further away yesterday.

All the wild animals in that area must know Mary Ellen by now.

Mary Ellen has a new friend. Maybe the eagle wants another pic posted.

Looks like it just completed a successful fishing trip.

Fantastic! It shows just how large these birds really are. What wings!

Wing span is longer than a coyote's body.

Not to eat the coyote - it was about scavenging rights.

That dog got lost very quickly.

Mary Ellen sees this incoming, thinks: "Excellent! Light is at a decent angle, I have my phone in hand. Shame it's not the real camera with time for manual aperture/exposure adjustment, but automatic mode will be okay..."

I see this incoming, think: "This might not have been the best day for me to wear my stoat hat."

It's got a fish! Look by the talons and you can see at least a couple of fins.
