Halfway between Rocky Ridge Farm (a.k.a. "The Smith's House") and Chillicothe is an abundance of farm ground. Normally, there is nothing interesting to look at. Although, recently a flock of eagles have made temporary residence in an overflow lake. We have seen up to 13 of them at once. They are beautiful! Beee-uuuuu-tiiiii-fulllllllllllll!
Some of them are immature birds and still have brown heads. At least 5 or 6 of them, however, have heads as white as snow. Did I tell you how beautiful they are?
Some "old timers" have told me that they migrate with the geese. I don't know, makes sense to me???
According to Wikipedia, this is also a bald eagle. He just hasn't fully matured. Per my BRIEF research, the bald eagle normally develops a white head after his fourth year. However, they can turn white after their third year, albeit rare.
I think that I scared this one out of the tree with my camera clicks.
Have I told you that I think they are beautiful?
I captured two mature baldies and an immature baldie looking for lunch.
You can see the small article about them in our local paper here.
The Wikipedia page that I made reference to, may be found here.
