Bald Eagle

I believe this is a 2nd year Bald Eagle based on its light colored belly. Another of the many raptors I saw at RNWR. It was perched near the top of one of the trees between marker 6 and 7. I took these shots through my car's sun roof. The whole time I was shooting it, it had its feathers ruffled and its wings partially open. I'm not sure why, it's possible it was sunning itself as what sun there was was at it back.
None-the-less, it was quite the sight perched up there above me.


  1. It looks to be very wet. Maybe a failed attempt to grab something from the water and a struggled ensued?

  2. Definitely just trying to dry off!
