Juvenile Bald Eagles

Mon, Jun 10, 2017

A salmon washed up on the shore near our camp and it didn’t take long for the eagles to get here.  And for the first time, I saw some juveniles.  Here’s one inbound.


The plumage of a juvenile is a dark brown overlaid with messy white streaking. It’s usually the fifth year before a bald eagle looks, well, bald.

Here’s the landing and you can see that that fish has been picked nearly clean.


Check out the look on that juvenile waiting his turn.  He doesn’t look patient.


This guy was on the sidelines and also had the ‘look’.
