I had an amazing experience recently, and it was with a bald eagle named “Hal.” He was named “Hal” because the Latin name for a bald eagle is Haliaeetus leucocephalus. This eagle, male by the name, had a wing injury which has prevented him from going back out into the wild. The lovely gal Lisa that introduced me to Hal actually lives with this giant bird in her home. I felt privileged that I was able to not only meet her but this amazing bird! Hal was so amazing that I ended up taking about 150 photos of him. So, for today, I introduce you to my new friend Hal! More of this amazing bird will be shared later. Come and meet Hal!
Isn’t he a beauty? He is also a show off!
He is an amazingly photogenic bird…
He has pretty feet too! I sure would not want to get caught by these!

He fluffs up his feathers…
One amazing profile!
He has been checking out his surroundings and takes a moment to look down.
Here he is with his caregiver Lisa. She was just as lovely as Hal, and shared information about this bird and his species. Watching the two of them one could feel the bond between the two. Lisa is a volunteer for Bird TLC, a group formed in 1988 by Dr. James R. Scott, a now retired veterinarian.
