Bald eagles are awesome, getting a good shot of an eagle fishing was probably my first bucket list shot, and I got it at Centennial Lake in Maryland a decade ago. The lake wasn’t known for eagles fishing but they did fish there sometimes. I learned at the time there were a few nests within a few miles and Columbia Maryland has 4 lakes…
This is an eagle flying by with a Coot from Merritt Island in Florida. Tue coots are there in groups of hundreds of birds. (I had a post on Flickr but must have deleted it in my purge. )
This image shows an eagle with a GPS “backpack” used to track it.
Finally this is a Ed Clark Jr about to release a rehabbed Immature eagle that had fallen out of its nest when it was just a nestling.
When young eagles fledge they’re full size. And actually they might seem bigger than adults because they have slightly oversized “training” feathers. 😉🦅
