Another terrific aerial image of this teenage Eagle and a brilliant capture Ozprey!!!!!!
 
Great image of a juvenile/3cy Baldie Ozprey. Just based on the image, the solid dark upper breast but white chin and brown mottling on the belly and retained juvenile primaries and most of the juvenile secondaries ages it as a 3cy, so about 20 months old. The base of the bill is also yellow in this age group.

Great overhead of this youngster Ozprey. Looks like it is approaching adulthood. I wish it all the luck in the world. TFS this striking picture with us!

That's a tremendous picture you've taken of this youngster Ozprey, with some great plumage detail.

Many thanks for showing it to us lad.
