From the number of white head feathers and the yellowing beak, I’d guess this juvenile bald eagle is approaching its third birthday. Only about half of bald eagles make it to maturity at five, so it’s beginning to look like this will be a survivor.
Taken near Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada.
