"THE GRYPHON"

Bald Eagle (Immature) - 7 Photos

 

I feel all Bald Eagles, no matter what their age, are magnificent & awe inspiring birds of prey.

 

This particular immature Bald Eagle has particularly striking markings and is probably approximately 3 years old. Because of its stature and appearance, I have dubbed him/her "The Gryphon", after the mythological creature. 

 

It will almost be a sad moment when this youngster ages a couple more years and achieves its white head & tail feathers and all the trappings of a mature Bald Eagle and loses the unique characteristics.

 

And although it was a suspicious eagle in the past, never staying long enough for me to get off more than a couple of camera shots, this time although it led a merry chase from tree to tree, it eventually settled for half an hour. Thus allowing for greater documentation of this truly beautiful bird.

I have no words, what beautiful portraits of this handsome eagle!!!
You're right, the colouring is even nicer than that of an adult eagle.
Love all the photos.
