Big baby

On my drive to watch Gage play basketball last Saturday, 
I saw this immature eagle who was working on road kill along the road.

 It spooked & flew off when I drove by. 

But he perched in a tree not too far away and I watched him awhile before he flew away.
Just before flying off, a quick quirt.
The take off

 I see a band on the leg, wish I could see it well enough to get the information.

Hard to tell how big this bird is by my photos, but an immature eagle is quite a sight.

Such wing power.

It was late in the day, 
and no sunshine 
so the photos are grainy, 
but I'm so glad I got to see this big baby.
