Juvy Bald Eagle

I've posted variations of this young eagle in the past but I keep going back to this session. Our local nest is being watched closely as construction and destruction is being done next to the nest. State and Federal officials are looking into the activity surrounding this nest tree that has produced eight fledglings since 2008. This juvy is one of the first to leave this nest and still my favorite. That was the first time I had been this close to any eagle and to say I was nervous would be an understatement.
