Another Expert from Washington, DC
A group at the Blue Hill Overlook on Cadillac Mountain asks a fellow in another group to take their picture, mentioning that they're from Washington, D.C.
A bird flies over Eagle Lake, and one of the D.C. fellows asks, "Did you see that bird?" The apparent avian expert in the group, having spied the bird on the wing at likely over a mile distant, confidently says, "Oh yeah ... it was a bald eagle." "Really?" asks one of his friends. "Yeah, it's Eagle Lake."
