adolescent Bald Eagle
I was out with the camera early yesterday and saw this young Bald Eagle sitting on a pole. It was some distance away so I hurried over and then carefully approached so I wouldn’t startle him. I got off maybe 3 or 4 shots and then saw a “battery dead” message in the viewfinder. Arrrggghhh. And of course I didn’t have a spare with me. The lighting was not great, so… thank you Lightroom.
Even though it doesn’t have the adult coloring it was quite large. Since it takes around 4 or 5 years to get the adult white head feathers this guy could be a few years old.
