The American Bald Eagle

The bald eagle, our national bird, is the only eagle unique to North America. When I got the chance to photograph this incredible bird I was so exited, specially since there was a baby in the nest.

I stood in the sun without any shade for 3.5 hrs waiting for the mom to return to the nest, I figured she went to get food for the baby. I was in the verge of calling it quits thinking the eagle was not coming back any time soon, but then she appeared. (I would never quit, but I was hot and my legs were getting tired)

She had some kind of rodent and killed it in the nest before feeding it to the baby, it was really cool to watch. I feel very luky and honored to have have witnesed and photographed this incredible bird.
