Eastern Imperial Eagle

Been meaning to put this on the blog for a couple of weeks now. We saw this eagle nearly every week over the winter. Mostly in the same tree and usually with a couple of hoodies attendant. Sometime in the first week of March s/he set off back to Eastern Europe. Migration is a risky time for birds, especially raptors and s/he will have to run the gauntlet of hunters, trappers, wind farms and other dangers. This is the last set of photos I have of this beautiful and majestic bird - hoping to see it again in early November.
