Taken back in March in Morgan County, Colorado. The eagles were congregating at a lake and prepping themselves for their trip north for the summer. All put on a nice airshow for me and this is an image of a flyby by a three-year-old.
I love the look they have at this stage of development. Their eyes and beak are starting to turn yellow and with their head starting to turn white, they get that almost mask-like dark stripe behind their eyes. My son likes to call them ‘bandits’ when they have this look.
