The Regal Bald Eagle
Bald Eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus. You don't see these down south a lot. However, when I was up in Seward, Alaska, you could see them roosting along the walking path along the water. They are amazing birds to watch and were generally not shy (i.e., take as many picture as you want without them flying away). They are opportunists and are known to eat a broad variety of things including live fish, miscellaneous carion (moose, whales, etc.), birds, reptiles and small mammals.
