Young and old(er)
This photograph shows the difference in feather coloration between a Golden Eagle at three months old, SNOOPY on the left, and one that is probably 6-8 years old, PATCH on the right. These two females are destined for release when ready, the youngster still hasn't flown yet but will soon. The older bird is recovering from an eye injury and will go back where she came from when the time is right.
Aren't they just the most beautiful ladies!
