It’s been a while since our last bald eagle update. The good news is that our resident eagle stalker/photog extraordinaire, Chris Johnson, has been keeping tabs on Richmond’s population of eagles — adult, juvenile and still in the nest. Check out this series of pics, all shot in the past week:

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
