Did ya notice the ones with the dark heads and the splotched backs? Looked like a completely different species. I'm not a bird watcher and the only eagles I've seen are Balds and Goldens. Does anyone know what these birds are?

They are all bald eagles. The ones with white heads/ tails are mature and the others are juveniles. I was watching one yesterday picking off some fish a guy walked away from while ice fishing. He moved to a spot 100 yds away and the mature eagle swooped down and took a perch he had left. My wife took a picture of a mature eating a male mallard duck a year ago while sitting in a tree in our yard. At the same time 2 juvies were eating more right on the beach. They wouldn't bring them to the tree. The next day I went down there and saw several duck carcasses. They are really beautiful birds and this time of the year I see them several times each week.
I raise this glass in tribute to old friends...Davidmil and Rickmur. Two of the originals who made this place great. Rest in Peace.

It is mating season for them now.

Friend saw a pair the other day falling locked together, releasing each other just before hitting the trees and doing it all over again.

Nice video! Thanks for the share. It reminds me of an encounter I had with some ravens back in '92 on a boat in Dutch.
