Immature Bald Eagle

I photographed this Immature Bald Eagle at Charleston City Lake in Charleston, Arkansas.

Up until its fifth year, when it reaches sexual maturity, the immature Bald Eagle’s plumage is dark brown with haphazard white striping.

The term “bald eagle” actually refers to a bird that is “white headed,” not actually bald.

Bald Eagle Perched In Tree

This Bald Eagle perched in tree reminds me of a hood ornament they used to have on cars years ago. I’m sure most people do not know what I’m talking about. If you search for “hood ornament”, maybe you will see what I see.
