Bald Eagle

Every year a few pairs of eagles come down from North to the Merrimack river in Newburyport where the water doesn't freeze over completely.

I have been up there a few times to find these eagles and have mostly only seen them from pretty far away.

Today one of them came close enough for me to photograph the detail in its wings. Apparently this is a juvenile so has not yey developed the distinctive white head.
