A New Eagle In the Forest

It takes long-lived bald eagles about five years to reach maturity. Only adults sport white head and tail plumage. I've been watching this young adult grow since it was a mere fledgling, and it has only recently come into its full colors, though there is still a little brown on the underside of its tail.

“Good morning, young eagle on my barn. May your hunts be true and your wings be strong as you prepare to find your own territory in the enchanted forest.”

The eagle promptly moved to the meadow just beyond the barn just after I shot this image and a moment later caught some small animal. A meadow vole, I guess. Then it was promptly harassed by a prankish raven until it moved on.

One thought on “A New Eagle In the Forest

  1. Greetings from the Wisconsin River Valley. Sitting out back with my morning brew. A small flock of Sand Hill Cranes flying over. An Eagle the other morning. Here in the valley there are many birds that come for a visit. Spring is in the air. We are waiting for the Humming Birds, will put up feeders for them soon. The flowers I plant for them will feed them late Spring and summer.
