Bald Eagle (Immature)

Every so often, we need to be reminded to look in the sky for the birds. Sounds obvious. But, it is easy to forget when we get in the habit of looking in trees, hedges, water and the grass. Who'd think the birds would actually be flying in the sky?!?

And, who'd think there would be a Bald Eagle flying over Montrose Beach and the Magic Hedge. But there he was soaring around on Sunday morning. The immature versions have fairly distinctive lower body/wing patterns and their flight "posture" is different enough to make identification pretty straightforward.

So please remember to look up every once in awhile. You might see something interesting.

  1. I don't recall ever seeing an immature eagle, or if I did, I probably wasn't aware. (I have an adult on my May 15th post.) Thanks for the views!
