Some may prefer to sight and photograph mature adult Bald Eagles. I will take any sighting and an eagle that is relaxed, perched in a tree, no matter what age, is a gift.
From the colouring and appearance of the feathers, this is most likely this year's offspring. Perhaps female because of its size. And what a beauty even at such a young age.
And there it perched, just chilling but keeping an eye on the river and occasionally checking out the waterfowl below and perhaps, the potential of fish and then it was off.
