Bald Eagle chick-Eye to eye

Friends, this is the young Bald eagle chick that i have been following all spring. He is about 10 weeks old and  took his first flight on 6-28-12.  When i came back on the 30th, i fully expected that i would not see him at all, but he was sitting lower in the same tree about 20 feet away from my camera and on eye level.  He is truly a magnificent bird and showing signs of being a fierce warrior and excellent hunter. After our stare down, he again flew away, til Tomorrow MJ

  1. fantastic mj, if only my sea eagles would sit so nicely at eye level … you are harvesting the rewards of your hard work watching through the spring 🙂

    • yes, they get used to me sitting alongside the road with the long lens pointing at them, they probably miss me when i cannot visit, thanks for your comment and keep waiting, one day they will put on a show for you, MJ

  2. A wonderful capture, MJ. I would like one of them! 😉

  3. what a terrific experience. I am new to your blog but will return for sure. i invite you to visit my blog.

  4. Great shot…let Jimmy use this head for the full bird. There is so much more detail in this one than the entire eagle. Make sure he follows the details. Hug, jack

  5. That is a fantastic shot. Not everyone has a wild eagle for a pet.

  6. Hmmm. He looks like he needs his coffee! Gorgeous shot!
