What is it about a bald eagle that makes people stop to watch them, usually in awe of their beauty?  I know when they get flying around the lake by my house, they get my attention.

On our recent trip to the zoo, we walked by the enclosure (I can’t bring myself to say cage), and of course we stopped.  Typically a good photo without the bars at the zoo is not possible but I did manage to get a couple decent ones.  Unfortunately, there’s a brick wall behind the bird.

With my new aquired Photoshop skill, I was able to save the photo.

 The Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg is the home of Stanley & Stella, two Stellar’s Sea Eagles.   A large bird of prey originally described in 1811.  A large eagle with dark brown plumage & white wings which feasts mainly on fish and water birds. It is on average the heaviest eagle on earth weighing in at 11 to 20 lbs.
