Bird at Hyatt Lake

During my second trip to Hyatt Lake of the summer I saw this bird. What is it? I’m not sure. Maybe a hawk of some kind. I’m not very good at identifying birds. In fact, in my prior post I labeled the bird as a bald eagle (as that is what I was told), but now I’m thinking it may have been an osprey.

Juvenile Bald Eagle at Hyatt Lake in Southern Oregon

As mentioned previously, I headed into the Cascades earlier this month to try and find a nest of bald eagles on the edge of Hyatt Lake. I found the nest, but ma and pa were nowhere to be found. There was one juvenile in the nest staring at me stare at him/her. After about an hour of this I was about ready to call it a day as it seemed I would have to wait forever for the white-headed parents to return. Suddenly, the juvenile stirred for the first time and made a little fly around. I captured today’s photo at the beginning of that moment.
