I was taking my daily walk along River Road today when I spotted a mature bald eagle flying downstreamalong the Battenkill River. He was approximately 2 miles from the NY State line. He was slightly above eye level (25 to 30 ft above the river 4 to 9 ft above my head and no further than 40 ft away from me. A thrilling sight.
