If you don’t know what a raptor is, it is a bird of prey.
I found this bald eagle on a power pole on August 29th. Bald eagles are a rare and interesting bird that was on the verge of extinction in 1978. There is a pair of them at Palmer Lake and you can spot them on the power poles.
This is a closeup picture of a bald eagle I took. In August I went to the National eagle center up in Wabasha Minnesota, and they have three bald eagles.
I also found a Red-tailed hawk yesterday on a power pole at Palmer Lake. When you are looking for these raptors, you have to look closely at the power poles.

I was an Outdoor Education Intern at Mississippi Gateway Regional Park in the summer of 2022 where I helped with the summer educational programs. I am also active with the Best Buy Teen Tech Center where I do coding, graphic design, photography, and 3D printing. A few of my photos have been published in a newsletter by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation. Minneapolis Parks and Rec has also published my nature photos on their Facebook page.
