I stopped at a few spots along the Ct River on the way home  Friday, and 
spotted a few bald Eagles, even though the viewing conditions were  not the 
best.  At the Ct River Museum in Essex there were 2 adults down  river, 1 on 
each side.
 At Haddam Meadow SP there was and adult sitting on the  ice on the river 
guarding a deer carcass, which was pretty well stripped.  There  was also an 
immature sitting in the trees  drooling.
I got some pics of the adult, but it was so far out there was  too much 
heat shimmer.  I think it looks nice, anyhow.  The tail looks  orange, and I 
suspect that's from blood from the carcass. Link to  pics:
