Hot Bald Eagle
I took this photo of a hot bald eagle on July 4th. The sun was very warm and the bald eagle was employing several tricks birds use to keep cool.
Bald Eagle Cooling Off
The eagle was sitting in the shade beside its nest. Also, the eagle is panting with its mouth open and has its wings and feathers slightly lifted to let air circulate better.
This bald eagle has a nest beside some Pennsylvania farmland not even close to a river or lake.
