A few days ago I posted a picture of this eagle (a poor picture).
This morning I went back and got some much better pictures.
Hope you enjoy!

Is that on Parksville?
Nope. In the city limits of Sevierville and only about 250 yds from the Kroger plaza.

I watch it during my lunch break a few times per/week.

I hate those eagles! J/K

When I was doing graduate work, I had solar powered backpacks on my herons so I could track them. I was flying the river systems one day looking for my herons and I got a signal from Douglas lake. I was flying every day the weather would allow, and I kept getting that one heron on Douglas. I had put the transmitter on it on Watts Bar when it was a chick. Since it had not moved much, I decided to home in on the signal and get a visual on the bird to make sure everything was ok. It runs out I was reading a signal on a bald eagle that the Dollywood Foundation had marked. They had used the same frequency I had. I was miffed. I had lost a months worth of locations on a fledging chick, and by the time I figured out what was happening, my bird was long gone, never to be located again.
