This Bald Eagle posed for portraits at the Center for Birds of Prey Photography Day in November. He recovered from a back injury under the Center’s care but cannot fly to catch food so he will remain part of their education program.
This was the first bird of the day and the song birds that had been flitting in and out of the pine trees at the edge of the demonstration field all disappeared from view when he was brought out.
The size of the Eagle’s claws are even more amazing up close.
