Bald eagle

Bald eagle

La Crosse, WI

Juvenile perched in a tree next to a river. It's very windy and cold, so the eagle is quite fluffed up. This is the only decent perching shot I got over the weekend, with no branches in the way. I'm guessing the eagle may be a first or second year bird, seeing how dark its beak is. I always enjoy seeing the next generation of eagles having a successful year.
