On Saturday, the last day of January, I had plenty of opportunities to catch shots of immature Bald Eagles. I counted at least seven and close to that number of adult Bald Eagles. These are some shots of one immature that was perched right above me for awhile. I really like the variegated feathers in this young eagle. I wish the view had been a little less obstructed but there was nothing I could about that.
Thanks for looking,
Steve

Now you can really see the variegation I was talking about.... more stupid branches. The eagle was so close I couldn't fit the whole bird in the frame.

Now I know where the term "Spread Eagle" comes from. I think? :roll: Maybe not.

Great series Steve! Love the 4th with the light on the eye. I find the youngsters in our area much more photogenic than their parents. I guess all their "fear" radar isn't working yet...cheers...Don

Thanks Don. No, they really don't show much fear of humans which I guess is both good and bad.
