My Bald Eagle.

June 28 of 2007 the Interior
department took the American
Bald Eagle off of the endangered
species list.
The Bald Eagle is a member of the
fish eagle group. I am surprised to
find that there is very little difference
between the color male and female
color. I've seen two eagles the same
color patterns and assumed it was two
males or male and juvenile male. WRONG.

The Bald Eagle is known to fly at an altitude
of 10,000 feet. In level flight it can achieve
speed's of 30 to 35 mph. The Juvenile
reaches maturity in 4 to 5 years. In the
wild they can live as long as 30 years.

I've been trying to get photos of these Eagles
for awhile now, I'm getting closer. They
are beautiful.

I would hope for good light, and birds
who like to have their pictures taken.

Hello, I have been absent for a while but looked at your photos whenever I could find some time. Again your photos are just so beautiful and I have to go down there and see this area for myself.
Happy New Year to you and your family, Heidi
