Bald Eagle, adult with antenna

February 13, 2014 in Bald Eagle

In the middle of a heavy snow day, accidentally discovered this adult perched on the north side of the Merrimack River.  To my surprise, just a short distance away, another adult was also perched.  It was difficult to capture a sharp image due to lots of small branches in the way along with heavy snowflakes that can impact the autofocus function.  It was also dark lighting conditions in the midst of the snowstorm!  What a treat to upload the photos and observe the GPS transmitter antenna on the back of this Eagle!!  No leg bands, which would allow for positive identification.
