Bald Eagle, subadult, 3rd year

November 24, 2013 in Bald Eagle

While checking out many of the Eagle locations in Lawrence along he Merrimack River, encountered this subadult at close range.  For some reason it was not concerned about a nearby human presence with a big telephoto lens!  Looks like a third year bird based on markings and whitish head coloration and eye stripe.  Also, shades of yellow in lower bill and lightly in place on upper bill. Only able to view in the shade and not in direct light, but quite a treat all the same.  A few added photos posted:
