I can't help myself. When they come to my trees, they call me, "hey Dave, come and take my picture." They stop by almost daily now, the year around.
"I think this is my best side."
The scientific name of the Bald Eagle is Haliaeetus leucocephalus which literally means white headed sea eagle. Note that "bald" does not mean hairless in this case. It comes from the Middle English word ballede which refers to the white on the heads of animals. The eagle was given this name because of its white head.
