Kayaking on the White Water River in South West Ohio
This is a juvenile bald eagle, they don't get their white head and tail until they are four to five years old.
The holes are the nests of bank swallows.
Bald eagle nest #1, on the White Water River:
I went back a few days later and there were two eagles in it:
These were shot from almost 9/10 of a mile away.
Bald eagle nest #2, this one is near Spring Valley Wildlife Area which is next to Caesar Creek State Park, shot from the bike path from a distance of 1500 feet:
Bald eagle nest #3, on the Great Miami, from 1.3 miles away:
Bald eagle nest #4, on the Great Miami north of Hamilton:
It was empty when I first started shooting, then a squirrel came along:
About 2 seconds later an eagle arrived to chase it away:
