New Raptor found but old one missing

Received this morning from photographer and author Cal Vornberger:

You don’t see this guy too often in the park. This was taken at the Harlem Meer.

Meanwhile this morning, in the rain and high winds, the Early Birders [just barely plural -- only Ardith Bondi and I] failed to find the Great Horn Owl in its usual haunts. As a consolation, the red-phase screech owl was seen snoozing in its usual black locust hole

PS You're right. It's a Bald Eagle.
