Looked out of my kitchen window toward the Battenkill river and saw a large bird in a dead tree. It looked like an Eagle which I confirmed when I was able to look at it with my Binoculars. The dead tree is a popular resting place for red tail hawks as well as ravens. I stepped outside to get a better look at the burd when I realized there was a second bird in the tree. I was over 150 yards away from the birds so I tried walking down River Road to the river to get slightly closer. I got within 125 yards of them when they took off. One was definitely mature with the white head feathers and tail. The other had only a few white feathers on the head and was obviously an immature bird. They were both headed to NY.
