Bald Eagle

Streaky lines are wildly out-of-focus enclosure grating.

This is one of the three eagles at the zoo who are at the zoo because they can't fly; I can never remember his name (it's in an Algonkian language and slides off my lamentably anglo head) but was blown out of his nest near Sioux Lookout as a nestling and injured, and never really got able to fly as a result.

I'm always pleased to get a clear picture through the wire mesh, and this is very much the look visitors to the Metro Zoo have been getting from this particular eagle for something like the last ten years now, so I'm quite pleased with the shot.
