Description

These are two videos I did today of our local breeding pair of Bald Eagles here in York. Each of the two videos is a different parent. The one shows the first parent leaving the nest.

This was from 100 yards away from the bank opposite of the Codorus Creek.

Description from Wikipedia

The Accipitridae, one of the two major families within the order Accipitriformes (the diurnal birds of prey), are a family of small to large birds with strongly hooked bills and variable morphology based on diet.
