Perched Golden Eagle in the National Elk Refuge near Jackson


Here is another shot telling.  The feet tell me that he is most likely a Golden Eagle.  What do you think?  Golden or Juvenile Bald Eagle?


I believe this is a juvenile bald eagle.  The beak/ bill is larger and more characteristic of a bald eagle, the feathering does not go all the way down the leg as shown in the second pic, and the wing markings also look like a young bald eagle.  Either way they are neat pics- I like the second one where it likes like he is relaxed and stretching.
Turns out it is a Baldy (according to the Raptor Center).  You (and the other guy who sent me a private message) were right.  The nostril color was the deciding factor.  Thanks for your input.

Hi Northstar.
That is a great shot, a most unusual situation. I love the vivid blue eye mask too.
So many great shots from everyone, too many to list individually so I hope you will accept a collective well done from me.

Cheers Graham.

not sure what kind of bird this is but i caught him peeking at me from around a tree branch.

I had another go at the Great Crested Grebe today and got some shots of its mating dance. Quite a performer (I posted a few others on the 1DX thread, http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=8079.2595

Since it´s a portrait thread, I suppose this is more appropriate ...

First Great Blue Heron seen this year.... the shot was through a chain link fence and focused so as to make the links of the fence almost invisible. If you look closely at the picture you can make them out... they are the slightly brighter diagonal diamond pattern.
The best camera is the one in your hands

Don, it's apparent that there is something but I wouldn't have guessed a fence.  Very nice.

Goes to show it's still better to try the shot anyway.
