Bald eagle flight practice

Bald eagles can live up to 30 years in the wild. It takes juvenile bald eagles about five years to develop the characteristic white head and tail. Until that time, juveniles practice flight maneuvers, including spectacular mating dances midair.

I spotted three juveniles above Ridgeview Trail, soaring on thermals, making wide circles overhead.
