photographing and learning about wildlife
The Bald Eagle is America's National Emblem. A distinctive brown body and white head and tail make it easy to identify even from a distance. When flying, the bald eagle very rarely flaps its wings but soars instead, holding its wings almost completely flat. Its hooked bill, legs and feet are yellow.
The Bald Eagle can be found from Alaska to the northern border of Mexico and from Pacific to Atlantic coast. It is the only eagle that is found exclusively on the North American continent. It is a true "native American".
Florida continues to fascinate me with it's diverse wildlife...I never expected to see a pair of bald eagles in my backyard!
