The American Eagle Foundation released 2 eaglets, Destiny (L3) and Thunderbird (K3), on 8-2-13 from Douglas Lake in Dandridge, TN. GPS satellite transmitters were placed on each eaglet for tracking. The transmitter on Destiny stopped working for unknown reasons. She was sighted and photographed at Deer Creek S. P. (Ohio) in early September 2014.
Today, I found and photographed her just a few miles west of Chillicothe, OH. The Patagial Tag L3 is clearly visible on her upper wing.
The wind ruffled the head feathers of this immature bald eagle exposing the white feathers below, which do not become pronounced until it reaches sexual maturity around the age of 4 or 5. #baldeagle #juvenile #raptor #bird #wildlife #nature #ohio #ohiowildlife #joshuaandersonphotography #wildlifephotography #DiscoverOhio
