Bald Eagle Pair

We see a lot of lone bald eagles around here, but this is the first mated pair we have seen.

This was on the way to the garbage dump.

UPDATE: one reader indicated that he thought female bald eagles had brown heads. According to this site, which seems pretty authoritative, male and female bald eagles have the same markings. Brown heads are indication of an immature bald eagle.

  1. That can't be a mated pair, unless gay marriage is legal in Idaho for Eagles. Females are brown-headed, IIRC.
