[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this American Bald Eagle photo at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago,IL.
I hope you like it:)

The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is a bird of prey indigenous to North America, most recognizable as the national bird of the United States. The species was on the brink of extinction late in the 20th century but has largely recovered and now has a stable population and is in the process of being removed from the U.S. federal government's list of endangered species.

The bird gets both its common and scientific names from the distinctive appearance of the adult's head. Bald in the English name refers to the white head feathers, and the scientific name is derived from Haliaeetus, the New Latin for "sea eagle," (from the Greek haliaetos) and leucocephalus, the Greek for "white head," from leukos ("white") and kephale ("head").
Range and habitat
Bald Eagles can be found in small concentrations throughout the U.S. and Canada, particularly near large bodies of water. The state with the largest resident population is Alaska; out of the estimated 100,000 Bald Eagles on Earth, half live in Alaska.

Hi CT,
A nice portrait shot on this Bald Eagle. I have been trying all winter to get shots of them along the Mississippi River, but they are always to far away or to high up in the trees. I always love these portrait shots, they look so dramatic. Nice work!
