A very determined young eagle prepares to touch down in a tree for our Freedom Friday picture.
Taken back in March at Cherry Creek State Park, Colorado, this juvenile showcases the cool plumage the young ones wear and provides a great look at their mean-looking talons.
As I watched it however, it also showed it had a thing or two to learn about choosing a landing perch. That small branch wasn’t strong enough to provide a steady spot and the raptor spent almost five minutes trying desperately to get situated on the moving target. It was actually pretty funny to watch.
