Info on Eagles from ODNR-Div of Wildlife

As we go into prime eagle nesting season here in Ohio it might be timely to show a photo that would be helpful in aging sub-adult bald eagles. As they go through the 5-6 year process of becoming breeding adults many of these younger birds can be mistakenly identified as golden eagles or not recognized as eagles at all. The photo depicts different plumage for the sub-adults and the eagle in flight is likely a 1st year bird.
