Bald Eagle Chick

Friends, this eagle chick is about two months old and ready to fly away, but today he is back in his safe house waiting for breakfast.  This nest is along a road but high in a tree, so lots of telephoto was needed to reach him. His beak is gray with little hints of the golden color that will predominate when he is an adult.  When we visited the nest yesterday, no eagles were seen, but when we pulled up to look closely, he rose up from the bottom of the nest where he had been napping.  til Tomorrow MJ
