Observation details

I happened to look up and see a couple of what looked like Turkey vultures flying in a fast straight line across the sky. The first "turkey vulture" looked a little different so I put my binoculars on it. I quickly saw an all dark, big bird with two big white squares in the middle of the wings. I fumbled for my crappy point and shoot and managed to get two pictures. Eagle3 and Eagle2: original crappy photos from point and shoot. Eagle1: Exposure and brightness adjusted on Eagle2 photo. It show the white squares and a nice white band on the tail.
