Juvenile Eagle

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

Eagles take on the mature, easily recognized coloring (white head and tail feathers) in their 5th year. This is a juvenile bald eagle. The juveniles actually appear to be larger than the mature eagles, but this is because the juveniles feathers are longer. The process is called "molt" where the feathers slowly fall out and are replaced with new ones.
