Bald Eagle Juvenile Ready For Flight

I discovered that Bald Eagles were in our own neighborhood after driving hundreds of miles over many months to places I was told they would be. Once I found that out they were here all along I spent days at the lake. This is a juvenile Bald Eagle. He is high up on a pine tree and appears to be getting ready to soar after prey. And, that is exactly what it did with the Colorado blue sky high above.
