This beauty has been hanging around outside our tree patch for the past couple of days. Did you know that young bald eagles don't have the signature white head and tail? They resemble more of an adult Golden Eagle because they are mostly brown and have a black beak instead of the yellow one like an adult Bald Eagle.
We have a large nest in a old Cottonwood Tree further up the road and we can usually spot a pair of eagles perched up high looking over the land. I never knew that eagles lived out on a prairie like ours, I've always imagined them in some place like Alaska. It still amazes me every time I see one of these beautiful birds.
