Bald Eagle

Haliaeetus leucocephalus


Mature Eagles are large birds with a white head,dark shades of brown wings and body, white tail feathers. Yellow eye, beak and yellow feet.


Bay inlet,river basin.


I was bird watching and waiting for a break in wet weather at the bay so I took a break.This very large Eagle landed 20 ft away from where I was sitting. It was very windy and high tide. I was so surprised to see an Eagle out at high tide. Usually I see Eagles out in sun or rain,daylight or darkness on low tides. It spent a few moments perched before being mobbed by black birds. Then it flew over the bay making towards the dense forest.
