    Well what an experience to see the Audubon come back out to release the male Juvi Eagle(sister is another week away from release). He took his first flight into the wild after 3 weeks of rehab. Flew across the cemetery and had a rough landing in the first tree. Then he flew of again and we lost him somewhere in the cemetery. went back this evening and he was perched in the tree....adult were near by but never came in when we were there. Will heck it in the morning!

    Great shot!

    The lady has ballz holding the bird without a leather sleeve or glove. Also, cemetery, what a place to give "new life".

    Good god, the birds almost the same size as that lady! She's lucky he didn't take her with him for a mid-morning snack. Great shots, Eric. #10 nominated.

    #12 is the best, probably cuz you could control your composition a lot more. Beautiful creature.

    I'm so glad you were out there for this! Your shots came out great! How do you feel about it, Eric? Do you think he was ready and strong enough?

    I have a question for you, is that a juvenile bald eagle or golden eagle? I can't tell, and I can usually tell the difference. I live in bald eagle central (literally have seen about 50-60 of them in one small area), and love eagle shots. These are really neat. :)

    Yes...He flew very well! He has been cruising the area, have seen the Adults but I have yet to see them all together. We are sure the little guy has reunited with the Adults.
