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.

At the very end of Rivermoor Street in West Roxbury, just behind the last building in the industrial park there, is a dead tree that towers over everything else.
