Bald Eagle
Photographer: Teresa McGill
Location: Central Lake, MI
Story: 
We have been researching the bald eagle for the last thirteen years with ten of those winter in our eagle blind. Unfortunately we had to relocate. Thanks to this year's extremely harsh Michigan winter...we finally had visitors. This young bald eagle is still showing its 2nd year plumage but should be molting into its 3rd stage of plumage meaning it is starting its 3rd year of life
