Great Observation : Pair of Bald Eagles!
The video is a little bumpy, I forgot my monopod, but used the youtube stabilizer app. I think fixed it a little, still you can clearly see it is an eagle. The pair flew down river a couple of times while we walked on the trail along the river.

This is a great picture of a Spruce Tree hugging a White birch.

These two land locked lovers will stand for many more years.
