Young Bald Eagle

Posted by
Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 26 January 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

We recently discovered a parent bald eagle and her three youngsters, just outside of Elora and using a long valley as their winter hunting grounds as well as various farmer's fields. I share a few images of them here and am pleased not to have to travel to the west coast to see these beautiful raptors. Young Bald eagles resemble Golden eagles. Both are seen but rarely in Ontario.

You can see what a big bird this is and you caught the moment well.

Great capture of this eagle taking flight with its large wingspan!! I love the lines of evergreen trees in the background. We have had sightings of the bald eagle here as well which has been unheard of. Now I need to find it. :-)

SO majestic in flight. We are also blessed to have several bald eagles living near the river.

same feeling here as tomorrow's. That grand bird is one with it's elements. I see them sometimes here but never so photographable except hunched over on branches high in the cottonwood trees by the river.
