Juvenile

Eagle 2-72

This is a juvenile Bald Eagle.  It takes the Bald about 5 years to become mature when his head and tail feathers finally turn white.  The picture doesn’t do this guy justice.  He was massive and I spotted him a good mile away.

Your camera would make him look a lot better than mine. For some reason we have only see just a few eagles this year, when we usually see a good number. Did they all head to MT...they know how good MT is too, huh?

Beautiful picture Carin!

I'm so jealous that you see them almost daily! I didn't know they don't get "bald" until they are 5 years old. Learn something new every day!

The Cotton Husband gets balder by the day. I think it's related to getting a wife and four children in a short order. :)

Over the holidays, while driving, my mom and I saw around 6 juvenile eagles and a few adults all in two trees! It was kind of weird, but really amazing!
