Took some photos of bald eagles fairly close to my house, thanks to a tip from a friend. I never think to go exploring around home whereas I would have hiked miles on vacation to see wildlife. This is a great proof and reminder to see your “backyard” with fresh eyes.

Photos captured with a Sony A7C with a Sigma 100-400.

A bald eagle is flying low on a harvested field with brown straw and dirt, trees and yellow grass are in the background. It's winter so the trees don't have any foliage and their limbs are dark and light streaks. The eagle's wings are on a downstroke and it is flying towards two pigeons moving so fast that they're blurry.

A juvenile eagle is perched on some fallen branches next to shallow water. A crow is flying away from the spot with it's wings spread midstroke, appears to have been chased away by the eagle who is 4 times as large.

A tree without any leaves in front of a similarly treeless forest has three bald eagles on it. The most clearly visible one is on the top with a gray sky as the backdrop with its head tilted such that one eye is looking towards the camera. The second eagle is on the bottom right with more trees as a backdrop facing to the right with its head turned away from the camera. The third eagle is on the bottom left against an even busier background, it's a juvenile quite dark and does not have the characteristic white head of an adult.
