Amazing Bald Eagle

It takes 5 years before a bald eagle’s head becomes totally white, but I prefer the colors of the juvi eagles from a photography perspective.

We came across this bald eagle sitting in a tree along the water’s edge and immediately recognized that this one was special. The colors on his back were amazing. He could have cared less that we were floating by in a boat, so he just hung out on his branch, watching the waters for his next meal.

    Beautiful and deadly. We saw many of them on Whidbey Island in WA.

    Wow Tim…that is one beautiful bird! I’ve never seen an eagle with those colors. I have eagles nesting along a small river area near my house, but I can only see the parents white heads in the nest because it’s very high up in a tall pine tree (yay). Hopefully there are eaglets, too. It’s been a sad year for nests and eaglet fatalities. Thanks so much for this beautiful share!

  6. Thank you very much Diane! The colors were amazing on this bird. It’s always fun to see any eagle. We get them around here in Texas sometimes but not like at this lake in Florida. He said that they have 30 resident birds there.

  8. Thanks Sheldon! It was lots of fun and very reasonable in price. I’m looking forward to doing it again one of these years. Also, I’ve been making a list of places to go for wildlife photography and the list is getting long. Need to prioritize my trips to get them in while I can still get around as I’m not getting any younger.
