Bald Eagle over West Metairie Ave
This afternoon, while on West Metairie eastbound between Rooseveldt and David, and looked up to see the massive silhouette of a Bald Eagle circling rather low over the road. It was a full adult, with white head and tail (which take four years to acquire). It dwarfed the crow that was harassing it.
The only known urban nests in our area are in Orleans, nowhere near this sighting. It could have a nest somewhere outside town, or maybe not even be nesting, but its presence is intriguing- could there be an unreported nest in urban East Jeff?
