PIC OF THE WEEK: 03/04/13 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2013 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Bald Eagle

(Haliaeetus leucocephalus)

Where: Chesterfield County, VA • James River south of Richmond

Notes: Here is a new image from another trip on the Discover The James (www.discoverthejames.com) with Captain Mike Ostrander at the helm. His knowledge of the local nesting pairs and habits are an obvious result of his passion and countless hours of observation of these majestic raptors. We booked this trip only a few days in advance, despite the warnings of chilly temperatures in the upper twenties. We were fortunate that the mostly cloudy forecast was amiss, as the sun light made its way through the mostly sunny conditions. It is always worth braving the elements at a chance to capture a photo or two of these tremendous birds in action. I especially like the unusual wing position resulting from this Eagle turning into a dive towards the water. Its slightly turned head and facial expression conveys the focus it had on its intended target. This regularly seen bird, known as "Bandit", is eight years old according to data gathered from its leg band. We saw over a dozen different Bald Eagles that morning including a few immature birds. Normally we would have probably seen more, but one adult from each nesting pair, was most likely sitting on eggs in the nest this time of year.
