haliaeetus leucocephalus

Some photos of Inwood's bald eagles (click to enlarge). One bird has already crossed the Hudson and is headed north; the others are expected to follow soon.

This is one of the birds "branching" a few weeks ago. Before they're able to really fly, bald eagles typically spend a few weeks hopping around branches and getting a feel for how their wings work.
