April 2, 2013: Bald Eagle

Sub-adult Bald Eagle. 3/27/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

This sub-adult Bald Eagle is probably a 4-year-old bird.  Note that the head is not yet completely white, the bill is not entirely yellow, white speckling on the belly, and the tail is not completely white.  In flight, the tail shows a dark terminal band.  This bird has been present at the Park for much of the year.  A juvenile was also present today.
