Bald eagles often sit on the top most branches of a tree - the better to view the territory for hunting
When looking for an eagle, I will look for a tree with the top branch bent down. The constant perching of an eagle will bend the tree top so that it then becomes a permanent perch.
When a plant or tree limb, even a substantial one, is bent over for a period of time, the cells in the outer, or top of the arch will grow faster, adding cells so the branch (or bent over flower) doesn't break. Once those new outer arch cells have grown, the plant or branch cannot be straightened up because there are more cells in the outer arch. The bent flower, if left lying on the ground, will then grow another bend, in an attempt to grow towards the light.
The weight of the eagle, continually using the tree for a perch - will bend the limb. This gives you a clue - when looking for eagle habitat, look for trees with deformed top branches. If you have the time to wait, or come back frequently, you will find an eagle, sitting in the top of the tree. Perfect opportunities to get some fabulous photos.
That gives a different meaning to "Lean on Me". I have always sung that song in my head while looking for eagles, or while photographing them, long before this songography challenge, so thought I would share those thoughts with you.
