A bird's-eye view

An adult bald eagle takes off from its perch in a tree in the Elm Grove Cemetery on the Stonington side of the Mystic River, Monday, January 8, 2018. Local photographer Barry Watrous has placed a deer carcass, acquired as road kill from a state DOT connection, on the ice just off River Road on the Groton side, to attract eagles. Watrous says the eagles have been feeding during the late morning and early afternoon hours for several days now allowing him to get many good photos. Bald eagles are frequently seen around the region during the winter months.  (Sean D. Elliot/The Day)
