There is a river near my home that many Eagles frequent-two of these Eagles have built a nest in a tree there. I took a walk along the river this morning and much to my delight saw a few of the locals- juvenile Eagles flying around. Their heads still brown, not white as when they mature, their feathers still an uneven brown. I am still trying to master the art of capturing birds in flight with my camera so this morning provided a great opportunity. The drawback was the morning sun shining brightly, which I loved, but found made it hard to get clear shots. Once again I found myself in awe watching these majestic birds take flight from a tree, their wings spread wide and so graceful as they flapped and then would coast along. Here are three of them.
One of these guys doesn’t seem to be too happy with the other.
Many buildings sit behind the area near the river, this Eagle flies by pointing out the contrast between nature and man’s modern development infringing on their habitat.
