Bald Eagle

Departure

Viewed 30 Times

This bald eagle flew near my car while I was waiting near the Kansas City Southern railroad bridge near Hillview, Illinois. It had been perched in a large oak tree until I started taking pictures of it and it got spooked and flew away. I love the way you can see the feather spread on the near wing and the claws trailing behind under the tail. This was the only mature bald eagle I saw this day, but there appeared to be some immature ones just east of here.
