On a late afternoon walk yesterday, heading down Trinity Pass toward the Mill River, I was in front of Judge Kelly's place when a big bird caught my eye. It was drifting above the river toward the reservoir and I knew immediately it wasn’t a turkey vulture. I watched it sail, and I saw it bank against the wind above the trees to the north. Its tail was white and its head was white. A bald eagle, indeed -- the first I’ve seen in Pound Ridge.
