Juvenile Bald Eagle, Juneau, Alaska

When bald eagles are young, they lack the distinctive white head of the adult. This younger eagle has started to change from a juvenile to an adult and you can see both the darker feathers and the newer, white feathers on it head. This bird was sitting on a large wooden pole in the ocean off the pier in Juneau, Alaska. It was raining quite hard the whole time and I had a hard time keeping water drops off the lens of my camera.
