Eagles in Flight

I promised Bald Eagles in flight two posts back.  I am pleased with several pretty ones, so I decided to spoil you.  😉

Immatures even practiced on their ‘attack’  and ‘locking talons’ skills!

.

The above slide show shows where the two immatures did make contact and locked one talon together, then cartwheeled down, breaking away before the tree line.  (wish photos were better!!)

.

In the next two photos, you can see the difference in two immature Eagle’s mottled plumage.
