Bald Eagle in Flight

Immature Bald Eagle (View in Large)

Keephills, Parkland County, AB, Canada

February 26, 2010


I saw a relatively large bird perching on a tall tree while on my way to meet with Don, Gerry, and Joy to see the Evening Grosbeaks.


I got off the car, quickly slapped on my super-telephoto lens, and took some shots. Seconds later, it flew off from the tree.


While photographing this one in flight, there was also a second Immature Bald Eagle taking off from somewhere. They flew back to the same area but to different trees. When I left the area, I saw one Adult Bald Eagle perching on another tree.
