Default Eagle and Ducks, Overcast Day

I was supposed to go out with a group at the refuge for a sunset waterfowl fly off shoot. I did go out to the refuge but I decided not to go with the group. The chances of a good sunset were zero and none. So, I went around the auto tour to see what I could see. The auto tour is were I take 90% of the Eagle, Falcon, Geese, and other wildlife shots I post here.
As I said, the light was not good but I was able to get a few shots that I was happy with. I offer them to you here.
Thanks for looking,
Steve

The 1st or 2nd year immature Bald Eagle that I have seen the last several times out. This time he was sitting on the snag were the Peregrine usually sits.

He didn't stay there long. I couldn't get my shutter speed up in the bad light so this shot of him taking flight is a little slow.

The Mallards were happy to pose for me.

The light was really getting bad but I was able to grab this shot of a Cinnamon Teal. The surroundings aren't the best but oh well.

These are actually very good images regardless of what you were up against
considering the light...

I really enjoyed them...!
