Bald eagle (juv)

Haliaeetus leucocephalus


At one time, the symbol of the USA was endangered due to DDT and poaching. The endangered species act helped not only bring it back from the brink, but has made it fairly common in many areas. The young birds are all brown and gradually over the course of several years gain the familiar white head and tail
