American Bald Eagle:

These regal birds aren’t really bald, but their white-feathered heads gleam in contrast to their chocolate-brown body and wings. Look for them soaring in solitude, chasing other birds for their food, or gathering by the hundreds in winter. Once endangered by hunting and pesticides, Bald Eagles have flourished under protection.
Habitat
To find Bald Eagles, head for water, where the birds are likely to be looking for fish. Nationwide, Bald Eagles are most widespread during winter, where they can be found along Coasts, rivers, lakes, and reservoirs in many states. They winter in large numbers at some lakes and national wildlife refuges

This one looks like "made my week"! Stunning aerial of our National bird KC. It does not get any better than this. I sure hope you have a place picked out on your wall for this one! TFS!
 
Amazing photo. Yesterday I looked up "piebald" to refresh my memory. Means of two colors, most commonly black and white.
