Juvenile Bald Eagle
It might be hard to make out this bird’s markings from this photo. This juvenile bald eagle followed us around the marsh. We could hear it calling from deep in the trees until it finally made its presence known, spooking a great blue heron off the water, as it flew at almost ground level and rose up over us.
Had a hard time catching it with the camera but finally held it steady long enough to get a half decent shot. Gotta love how many of these birds are everywhere around here now. 10 years ago, I would not have believed I would see a bald eagle when stepping out my front door, or sitting in the Kmart parking lot, but I have done just that. They’re everywhere now. Hope their numbers keep growing!!!
