    Juvenile Bald Eagle close up

    The light hit this bird perfectly when I was taking this shot. A beam of sunlight through the branches

    Nice shot I wonder how old the bird is and at what age the head turns white.

    Very nice image. I'll leave the exact age of this bird to someone whom knows more while a juvinille he is likely older than one might think, I can say that it can take 8 yrs to go fully white.

    Exceptional detail. Wow! An eagle lives to be 30 in the wild (give or take) and they should have white head and tail by age 5 years.....(again, give or take)

    Great image... I took me about 60 years to go "fully white". However, by that time most of the "fully" had disappeared!

    400mm. I don't have any choice in that Unless I throw on a teleconverter.
    Just to clarify, I use the Nikon 400mm 2.8VR. A prime non-zooming lens.

    Thanks for your feedback everyone...trying to find that place on this forum where I can enter my real name? It has been suggested a few times but I am still looking. What a great place to look at pictures! I spent a few hours just browsing.
