Eagle Taking Flight

Eagle Taking Flight

This immature Bald Eagle was on the ground accompanied by a crow that stayed very close. Once the eagle took off, the crow did too, and flew with the eagle, pestering it for hundreds of feet in an apparent attempt to persuade the big bird to leave the area.  Taken Dec. 29, 2016, at the Ridgefield NWR.
