Before you ask, no, this eagle was not in the wild. We do have bald eagles in this area, but I have yet to see one and getting good photos would require extreme luck or a lot of time, neither of which I seem to have. This guy was in a wildlife sanctuary. I was a bit puzzled by the fact he was resting on the ground when there were plenty of trees to perch in, but there was no one around to ask. I don't know if he had been injured or if this was just typical for this particular eagle.
In the last photo, you can clearly see the nictitating membrane, or third eyelid, in the halfway position.
(Edit: I have since learned the eagles at the sanctuary are permanently disabled and cannot fly.)
