I recently came across a bald eagle here in Washington, D.C. I was very excited to see it and have my camera with me! I absolutely love raptors, especially bald eagles, and I'm thrilled to have these photos!

This bald eagle wasn't the only bird I saw recently. I also came across this blue jay. We don't have a lot of blue jays here in Washington and I'm very fond of of these birds too. I feel very fortunate to get this photo.

On the other hand, we do have lots of ducks here in Washington. Here are two mallards. I love the coloring of male mallards.

We also have lots of birds of the metallic kind, such as this jetBlue passenger airplane taking off from National Airport.

I had no idea that January could be such a great time to shoot birds.

Beautiful pics John. A definitely needed break from the ugliness. DC is so beautiful and this is the perfect time to highlight it and it’s birds. Your bald eagle pictures gave me the chills.
