Bald Eagle, first year, over Merrimack in Lawrence!

January 9, 2015 in Bald Eagle

What a nice surprise while scanning for Bald Eagles this afternoon with a staffer and fellow bird photographer from NXStage Medical Inc., to encounter a young first year bird flying west from the direction of the Lawrence Municipal Airport.  We were standing outside in the wind and cold comparing notes when we both noticed a likely eagle in the distance.  The eagle was lazily moving west and following the path of the river below.  The light was beautiful and we were so thankful!
