It takes five years for a bald eagle to fully mature. During that time, an immature bald eagle's feathers gradually change from motley brown and white to a totally white head and tail, with dark brown body and wing feathers, and the beak gradually changes from dark brown to yellow and the eyes from brown to light yellow.
I began doing wildlife photography in 2000. At first, it was for the sole purpose of providing bald eagle photos for this website; subsequently, it grew into an enjoyment of photographing all wildlife as well as doing a bit of scenic and macro photography. Switching from 35mm equipment to digital has made photography less expensive as well as providing the capability of delivering instant results. It's a great hobby and a lot of fun!
Thanks to the conservation efforts of so many caring people, bald eagles can now be seen throughout the Lower 48 States as well as Alaska, Canada and Mexico.
