Baldy Taking Flight

What A Beast!

While visiting a local Zoo, I was mesmerized by the resident Bald Eagle sat on his perch frantically flapping his wings. Perhaps he wanted to escape his overlords? Now, while he didn’t fly, the image I captured makes it look so.

  • The bald eagle is a bird of prey found in North America. Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.

Bald eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of the word, “white headed”. The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are about 25 percent larger than males. The beak is large and hooked. The plumage of the immature is brown.

There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.
