I only posted this photo because I’ve never seen an adult eagle with such a dusky head. Invariably they are bright white to the point they create exposure difficulties for your average photographer. I’m convinced he had his head in a mud puddle for some reason.
If by ‘common’ one means invasive. We saw the first three while in the airport at Honolulu which is remarkable because we never left the terminal. In Hawaii most of the terminals seem to be open to the outside.
Thes guys are endangered. Volunteers patrol the beaches looking for seals that have come ashore and stake out protected areas so they can rest undisturbed.
