this 3 year-old bald eagle has beaten some tough odds
more than half the eagles born the same year as he was have died
no wonder then for his fierce look to the lake and his next fish
in another moment this 4 year old eagle will lift his wings up and back and snap those taloned feet forward
to land with assured practice in a high tree
having spotted a fish in the river, this 3 year old eagle easily flips up in the vertical and heads for the water

I am eagle. I am hungry. I am fierce. I am eagle. I am hungry.
Um, did I say I am fierce? And 2 years old?
I was leaving the river bank when this young eagle flashed between me and the afternoon sun.
As this yearling eagle flew over the waters of Lake Mattamuskeet he started to furl his wings.
I hoped he would dive for whatever he was seeing – instead he flew on.
