February 7, 2021

I am an adult Bald Eagle,
If I were young I would have brown eyes
My head and tail would also be brown
Like chicks in my nest you can't see due to their size.

(Note: Make sure you click the link below to see a fantastic photo essay on aging Bald Eagles. David Simpson notes that, " He [the author] doesn’t get into the details of wing molt which can tell more about the age of the bird.  Body and head plumage are pretty variable.")

Location: St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Fellsmere
