Juvenile Bald Eagles

B


Posted by Picasa

I took these photos today. I think they are Norther Harrier Hawks but I am not positive.  I also saw several bald eagles but could not  get a decent picture of any of them. 

Someone identified these birds as juvenile bald eagles, I think they are correct.

I wonder what they are circling for? Chickens, kittens, puppies? Or do they eat dead things? I like watching the larger birds gliding on the winds.

Nice pictures of the hawks; too bad the eagles didn't come in close so you could get their picture too.

Gorgeous hawks in your photos. I'm one of those strange people that likes hawks, and birds.

Someone on a bird forum is telling me that these are juvenile bald eagles, I looked it up and I think they are correct!

Magnificent photos! Bald Eagles returned to our area only recently. For two years they've nested in a sight near here, I believe sometimes I see them in the distance...would love to capture a photo like yours.

They circle to gain and decline from high altitude.They are on a migration move north.

Cool. I've only seen one in the wild.

Seeing bald eagles is such a treat. I have only seen a few. How wonderful that you have them close by.

They're beautiful! I have only seen a bald eagle in real life in the wild, once. I will never forget it. I was driving and had to use my break to keep from hitting him with the car. Their size is amazing! I never realized just how big they are from their usual pictured distance.

I didn't have my canera :-(

Glide, not without reason. Something for the possible consumption of their interested. These great birds caught in flight with your camera Yours
