    Thanks for including us in sharing your wonderful photos, Earl. They are amazing. Having been just back from Jekyll, they brought fond memories back for me. Jane

    Hi Robin,
    I'm going to guess that this bird has molted most of the tail feathers for the first time and that the couple of longer feathers are juvenile feathers that still haven't molted. I have a raptor book that shows a juvenile Bald Eagle with about half of the wing feathers molted and it gives the same appearance.

    I really like the juve bald eagle photo because it shows something I haven't seen before, even in my Sibley FG: that notched effect on the tail feathers is pretty distinctive. Good bird photography can sure be informative. Thanks!
