Fledgling Golden Eagle

Category: Nature

 

Photo and caption by Jim Snyder

A young golden eagle tests the Nevada wind before taking flight. After spending his first 12 weeks perched high above the canyon floor under the watchful eye of his parents, he will leave the nest, never to return. His parents will spend the next few month teaching him to hunt.

Location: near Yerington, Nevada, US
