Bald Eagles

Haliaeetus leucocephalus


Lake Potter off of the Mississippi River.


This series of images shows a pecking order of dominance. The bird on the left wants the fish of the one on the right, but ultimately, it turned out the middle bird was dominant. This eagle chased off the original aggressor. After the last shot in the series, the eagle with the fish, gave it up and flew off.
