First of all, let me apologize for the quality of these first shots...but any day we see an eagle, we consider it a great day!
I had my camera on a monopod but I still could not hold steady with it zoomed in as much as it was.
You can still see that it is a juvenile Bald Eagle.
Look at that big dark, hooked beak. It was sitting in the same tree as the Bald Eagle seen here. It had been raining again today, but more a light rain rather than the downpour the other eagle had been in. If you didn't see it, be sure and look. I have never seen an eagle look as dejected as it did.
In addition to the Bald Eagle, I lost count of the hawks we saw. Oh not a huge number but somewhere around 6 or 7 or 8. Most I could not stop to take photos, but the last one, I got several shots.
I don't know what kind of hawk this is...
He cooperated for just a few shots..
I know this and the first shot look like the same shot, but they aren't.
He almost took off in the above shot..,but composed himself for the photo below
I do consider this my favorite shot...
I managed the one shot, another truck passed and he was off...and he was 'screaming' at me as he left. I wish I had thought to video it as he left.

Things are really looking up...
