Tom Rowley photographs Bald Eagles at a sturgeon carcass just north of Ocean Shores, Washington on February 8, 2014. We saw as many as seven Bald Eagles showing interest in this carcass, feeding at different times. The photo above shows four immature eagles. Bald Eagles do not attain their adult plumage, with white head and tail, until 4-6 years of age. During the transition years, beak and eye color change from brown to yellow. The eagle at left is nearly 3 years of age.
