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.
