Eagle Augusta, ME

I think I see some sort of laser arcs at its back end in the second pic. That's another typical bald eagle trait.

 

I've seen a lot of young bald eagles that had colors that made you take a second look... all sorts of shades of brown that just weren't right. The bill in this pic is HUGE... sometimes in flight that's not as easy to pick up on but with a shot like this, it's pretty clear how large it is. You can find some bald vs golden eagle pictures online and see a pretty big difference.

What are laser arcs?  I've never heard this term in conjunction with birding.

it's a very rare phenomena that few have captured on film... certain bird species produce an excess of electricity(kind of like when we shock each other with static electricity) and the result is a brief laser show out the birds back end. Usually only happens under dry conditions. It's been known to start a forest fire or two.

Don't BS a BS'er, esp. one with far more experience at it!  :classic_biggrin:
