He seems like a friendly chap - will he eat out of your hand?

Very nice photo.

Thanks Ted. He may eat out of someone's hand, but you can be sure that it will not be mine.

Don't be too sure Bob; I thought Texas was so big that it has a little bit of everything. LOL
Florida has the second largest population of American Bald Eagles. Alaska is number 1 with the biggest eagle population.

We have a couple of nesting pairs around here but you can't get close enough to them to take pictures.

Interesting factoid there. I knew Florida had a large population but didn't know it was that big. Surprising, given the large numbers we have here in WA but not sure they are all resident as many seem to show up with other birds migrations.

My boss has a saying about getting people to come to a meeting, "If you feed them they will come." Maybe bald eagles feel the same way.

Don't be a wussy - try a leather glove like falconers use.

Let me know how it turns out.
