Out in the marshes most Bald Eagle photographs are in flight. They do frequent some trees along the wood line, or ones growing on dikes, but bumping into them is dumb luck.
Above (click image for full size) this adult was hunting over the marsh and came over to check on me.
I wasn’t a danger, or eatable, so a quick circle and he was on his way.

I love Eagles, great shots, nothing better than watching them soar over head.
And staring down at you 😀
Yes, I love that look in there eyes, they know no one can touch them. Like they are daring you to come to close. Majestic
They still need to be careful around here, I have things flying that fly above them teach them manners.
I see, I reading about the Eagles eye sight, and that their sight is four times better than a humans 20/20 vision. It amazes me how they can see a fish in the water, but we can’t. Just amazing.
All these predators have amazing eye sight. Herons and Egrets spot fish underwater.
Yes, I wasn’t even thinking of those, I don’t see them around here very often. They are here, I am near the Mississippi River. I just haven’t seen any lately. Lots of flooding
You’re obviously a strange creature – what a quizzical look in the first shot!
It is a special moment when you share looks with all these animals out there. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
You and Ellen get a lot of special captures in your photos.
And have had a few ‘looks’ 😂😂
Powerful and beautiful in flight!
Impressive looking birds, huge feet, and as should be expected, nasty attitude 😀😀😀.
BTW, the issue of Spam, I first knew something was t right when I commented on a few of your articles, and the comments disappeared. 😀.
I like these birds.
Great shots. I love the tilt of his head in the first photo!
I was standing near his fishing grounds, not happy
