Bald Eagle in Hi Tor

Yesterday morning at 10:05 am I was traveling north on State Route 21 just approaching Woodville when I noticed a very large raptor heading toward me very low to the ground, flapping madly to gain altitude. At first glance it was obviously a Bald Eagle, very white bright head, wingspread wider than my truck. It passed within a hundred feet of me. I immediately pulled over and got out to watch it climb up over the Hi Tor marsh. It continued to circle to the south toward Parish Hill (also Hi Tor) and was out of sight in less than two minutes. Once again it seems that eagles cannot read a DEIS to understand that Hi Tor is "not the proper aquatic habitat" for them. Perhaps we need to take a new approach to wildlife education.
