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.
