Default Juvenile Bale Eagle Fly by.

*I guess it should of said Juvenile Bald Eagle . . .


This Juvenile left the nest about a week ago. Although still very clumsy while landing, eating, walking or even sitting in a tree, she is already a very graceful flyer. She buzzed over top of me so fast it's all I could do to get this shot off.

Excellent capture. Love the pose of the bird, very graceful looking.

What a beautiful shot, when will her head turn white?

Thanks Saly, It takes 4-5 years before they get the white head, and reach sexual maturity.
