Juvenile Bald Eagle

I spotted this juvenile Bald Eagle circling the rice field pond a couple of times,  then he put his feet down. I thought I was going to capture a landing.

He changed his mind! A pair of adult Eagles use this area daily, and generally the juveniles are not welcome to share. I waited and watched thinking maybe one of them was approaching. If so, I did not spot it.

Junior circled the pond one more time then landed in a pine tree further down the edge of the pond. If I hadn’t seen him land I wouldn’t have known he was there. He stayed put for longer than I stood waiting for him to make another move.
