Wildlife on and around the Island. 

The crown jewel of wildlife on Jamestown Island is the majestic eagle! Most active in the mornings and late afternoons, a visit to the Island can be made memorable by a "close encounter". This eagle was spotted on the wooded path near the reconstructed Glassblowing House. 

How this picture ended up being in focus is beyond me. 

Canadian geese can be seen around the Jamestown area generally year round.

Sometimes mistaken for a hawk, this
is a juvenile eagle. The characteristic white head and brown feathers will develop at about five years of age. This one appears to be around two years old based on plumage. 

Same little guy in flight. 

An early morning sighting.
