Steve Macintyre again shares with us spectacular images of Bald Eagles. These recent photos are of an immature bald eagle with mottled plumage who is still learning how to fish. Steve also includes a picture of an eagle’s nest which is located just 0.9 mi west of the Lake. If you look closely, you can see the head of an adult just above the center of the nest.
