I saw an eagle more or less over the Cannon River on my way to work today. I'd never seen one until the last few years, and though I now see several a year (and many at a time if we drive down the Mississippi in the winter), I'll never take them for granted. This one was being scolded away by some smaller birds and was flapping those huge, flat wings as it departed, rather than riding the air currents. It took my breath away, as seeing one always does.
