I had managed to make it to the shoreline, just in time to get some clear shots of this immature Bald Eagle as it flew across the river.
From its appearance, definitely hatched last year and as we are now in March, it has almost made that magical milestone of one year. Hopefully, it will continue to mature over the next few years and develop into a fully mature eagle.
But currently adorned in its mottled brown feathers and brown beak, this young eagle is a stunner & a magnificent flyer. Only time will tell if its hunting skills can keep up with its growth.
