Guess that bird...

I took this at Beehunter Marsh a few years ago.   Sadly, the camera died when he was right in front of me, and by the time I'd revived the camera, he was in flight.  So, if you can, try to figure out what he is.

Hint: If you look REALLY closely, you can tell what color his head is.
Answer: Bald Eagle -- Haliaeetus leucocephalus (leuco  cephalus is from "white-headed" in Greek)

Since you already know what these guys look like, here's a more interesting picture from   Way awesome!


  1. I guess a seagull but I don't know my birds. Can I triple guess? Hawk, bluejay? Yeah, I probably still don't have it. Worth a shot.

  2. Yes, Russo, you can triple guess. You can even keep guessing after you know the answer! [This is why it's a fun game.]
