Great pics, Barry. Love 'em. According to Wikipedia, this is part of their range. It extends from Alaska to northern Mexico, including all of Canada and the continuous U.S. From Atlantic to Pacific oceans, from the Gulf to the Arctic. What a range. And what magnificent creatures.

Thanks everyone. These are extreme crops. I hope to get closer to them soon. I was surprised to see bald eagles this far south.

Wow Barry - those are wonderful Bald Eagle pictures! I am impressed - thank you so very much for sharing them with us.

I took these two shots of Bald Eagles in Beaumont Texas today. Near a city park called Tyrrell Park. I was about 160 yards away with a 300mm lens. I hope to get back out there and find a better vantage point with out bothering them.
