During our backwater boat ride, we stopped at a popular tourist restaurant so I could use their toilets. Here, I was THRILLED to see a red-backed sea-eagle IN THE EXACT SPOT I had previously seen one during the backwater boat ride included in my stay at Carnoustie Ayurvedic & Wellness Resort back in March! Here is the picture I took of the eagle during that boat ride in March!
For a moment, I was stunned at the coincidence of twice seeing an eagle in the same spot, but quickly realized this eagle was part of the restaurant. A trained eagle. A tourist attraction!
Two locals approached, handled the eagle and put him on my shoulder! I was THRILLED!
Sensing my comfort, they let me hold him!
These eagles are as much a part of the sky here as the clouds! I was so thrilled to be able to get a closer look! He or she was quite tame, gentle even. Such a nice moment to remember!
