A loyal TWN reader sent in these pics he took yesterday of a pretty handsome bald eagle. They were taken at Washoe Lake in Carson City, Nevada — a place I hang out from time to time.

    The Dalliance of the Eagles
    (from Leaves of Grass, 1900)
    by Walt Whitman
    Skirting the river road, (my forenoon walk, my rest,)
    Skyward in air a sudden muffled sound, the dalliance of the eagles,
    The rushing amorous contact high in space together,
    The clinching interlocking claws, a living, fierce, gyrating wheel,
    Four beating wings, two beaks, a swirling mass tight grappling,
    In tumbling turning clustering loops, straight downward falling,
    Till o’er the river pois’d, the twain yet one, a moment’s lull,
    A motionless still balance in the air, then parting, talons loosing,
    Upward again on slow-firm pinions slanting, their separate divorce flight,
    She hers, he his, pursuing.
