The bald eagles are back at Fern Ridge Lake for the winter. This young immature “Bald Eagle Takes Off “ from its perch in a tall cottonwood tree he/she is about three or four years old. In its fifth year it will be of breeding age and get the white head & tail feathers that makes it the majestic American Bald Eagle we love so much.I took these pictures on Jan 10 at Richardson Park Wildlife area near Fern Ridge Lake in Lane County, Oregon, using my trusty Canon EOS 50D, EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6l IS USM Lens, set at 1/150sec., F 5.66, ISO 640, Focal length 400mm to capture this shot.
