This month’s #SuperSnap features a juvenile bald eagle from Dodge County. This camera location had so many great bird photos and #SuperSnap nominations that it was difficult to pick one!
Once this immature eagle is fully grown, it will have a wingspan of up to 7ft! Females usually lay their eggs within the first couple weeks of April, so in the next month there should be plenty of eagle chicks hatching. Eagles can often be seen soaring above bodies of open water, searching for fish to eat.
A huge thanks to Zooniverse participant eaglecon for the #SuperSnap nomination!

The sight of the bald eagle soaring through the sky is a treat for anyone to witness, but have you ever seen an eagle this close-up? With a wingspan that pushes six feet, the bald eagle dwarfs not only other raptors, but many of our Wisconsin animals as well.
This incredible shot of a juvenile bald eagle was captured on a Bayfield County Snapshot Wisconsin trail camera!
