Masked Eagle

This morning on my way to work, Lake Galena at Peace Valley was mostly frozen, and two immature Bald Eagles were showing at the south end of the lake. One bird, similar to the one shown here (photo: the bird guide) had a prominent dark mask reminiscent of an Osprey. It sat on the ice for the five minutes I was there, watching the hundreds of Canada Goose, Common Mergansers, and dozens of Great Black-backed Gulls and Lesser Black-backed Gulls. A pair of Hooded Mergansers and a half dozen other more common species rounded out the morning.
