Eagles with coffee

Tom's place this morning. Taken through binoculars.
An eagle soared around in front of Tom's house and settled in the field across the road for about forty-five minutes, joined by three harrassing crows. He/she chased them away and then was joined by his/her mate. The two landed over the crest of the hill. We could see one white head for awhile, and then they moved out of sight. Quite impressive. And, trying to figure out who was who, we looked some stuff up: the female eagle is slightly larger than the male with a slightly deeper (up and down) beak, but coloring is basially identical. So we still couldn't tell who was who.
