Immature Eagle braving the cold

I was on the Mississippi in Illinois looking for Bald Eagles to photograph and happened across this young immature Eagle huddled in a tree near the river. The river was froze over and he was bristled against the frigid wind trying to stay warm. He let me capture several frames and never flew away.
