    Now I know the last thing a French fry sees before being gobbled-up by a rapacious gull. Happy 4th of July everybody!

    I have posted about this bald eagle family quite a few times. Their nest is in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay area, by an elementary school. This year, the eaglets hatched around April 1. Therefore, this juvenile eagle is barely three months old (I captured this image earlier today, July 2, 2020), but as far as size goes, this eaglet is as big as the parents and fledged a couple of weeks ago. However, it will still take another four years to mature into an adult. Statistically, only 15% of the eaglets survive all four years.

    Here the eaglet was standing on a solar panel on the school campus.
