Glad you got to see one. They are lovely birds, aren't they?

Did you get to see it fly? Their wingspan is HUGE compared to body size. Rivals a bald eagle.

They are magnificient, as are most of the large birds of prey. I did not get to see this one fly. I wanted to and was afraid it was going to at the same, lol.It might have had it not been for trying to get the fish down.
