A Central Oregon bald eagle flies above Mt Bachelor as the first warm colors of the day illuminate the sky. Having perched atop a dead tree from dark till first light the eagle took off, flew a circuit around Crane Praire Reservoir then returned to its original perch to seemingly watch the sunrise.
