    Matthew Gilbert, 17, looks through his scope at a Steller's sea eagle in Georgetown on Friday. Gilbert was the first one to spot the eagle on Friday morning. He and a few others broke off from the pack near Five Islands and spotted the bird from the end of Moore’s Turnpike road, then alerted the other birders who made their way there. Gilbert said he has always been interested in birds, but it wasn’t until a few years ago when he really became serious about birding.
