Bald Eagles

December 23, 2009

Continuing the previous post, I want to share with you some more pictures taken on the same day.

Here is a photo of an adult Bald Eagle approaching with a fish:

Here, you can see juvenile Bald Eagle giving me a nice “photo pass”. Juvenile Bald Eagles have mostly dark plumage :

This is not the best shot but I really like to show a transformation of this eagle from immature to an adult state. Bald Eagles require four to five years to reach full adult plumage (white head and tail, large yellow beak). This eagle is most likely 5 years old.

I have much more pictures from this trip that I will share in near future. To see larger pictures please visit my Bald Eagle gallery.
