We see bald eagles around the library all of the time but rarely do we get a close up like library employee Kate Hearley did while bicycling with her husband last weekend.  As they came off the Red Cedar Trail, Kate saw this eagle by the library with a recent catch, what looks to be a fair-sized Northern.  We don’t know if the eagle stopped because the cargo was so heavy or just needed to take a bite.  Regardless, Kate whipped out her cell phone and captured these pictures before the bird took off with the catch struggling to gain altitude across Broadway.
