Blue Moon,

Nice Bald Eagle captures.
What part of the country were these taken? We have Bald Eagles in Northern California. I have even seen them in the Sacramento Valley but, I never seem to have a camera with me when I do. Nice job.

smac,

I live in what's known as "North Central" Florida. The shots were taken locally at Lake Wauberg, which is a few miles south of Gainesvile and part of the Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park.

The lake has an unusually large population of Bald Eagles. I counted 10 flying over it at one time and found two sitting a nest ...

It is amazing how their population has grown. In northern Wisconsin, we often see groups of them at certain times of year over the Chippewa Flowage with adults and juveniles in numbers between 20 and 30. Even in southern Wisconsin, we havea pair and juvenile in our valley, and many many within our county. One even flew over our small school in the middle of town the other day. I could watch them all day. I love the angle on the juvenile photo above and how his wings stretch to nearly touch both sides of the picture. Great captures!

Beautiful looking bird. Congrats on catching that nice parallel over-the-water flight shot clearly. Looks like you were in a very fortunate position for that one. Must be nice to have Bald Eagles in one's backyard.
