We are juvenile Bald Eagles
We were born earlier this year
We don't have a white head like our mom and dad
But that will come in a few years, don't you fear!

Note: We are pretty sure that these are the offspring of the eagles I monitor. They were born this spring and were just getting ready to fledge when the park was closed for COVID. The second photo shows what we think might be the baby from last year being chased out of the territory by one of his parents because they are getting ready to have a new brood now. The other 2 photos are the 2 from this year goofing off. 

Location: St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Fellsmere
