This American Adult Bald Eagle is waiting for the mate to come back. The female is larger by design than the male for egg laying purposes. The male has a much sleeker build as you can see by the head of this one. This pair of eagles are preparing the nest for soon to be laid eggs. I photographed this near Appleton,Wisconsin 2-08-2013. I used my Canon 7D with a Canon 100-400 mm. lens.
