These birds are primarily dark coloured. By the time they are 4 or 5 years old, they will develop a distinctive white head and tail feathers. The adults also have a large yellow beak.

Juveniles often have white mottling, especially under their wings.

When seen soaring, these birds hold their wings horizontally flat and at a ninety degree angle to their bodies.

Taken at the Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale, Alberta, Canada.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor

    This is the first I’ve seen a fledgling eagle this young. Awesome capture. Was this youngster injured pr is the family at this center? Instant Fav!

  • Hi Barb…he wasn’t that young…he was as big as the adult bald eagle just not old enough to have his white feathers and yellow beak yet…so less that 5 years old. All of the animals at the centre are rescues.
