Bald Eagle – Angry Bird?

I don’t usually like photographing captive animals, but Homosassa Springs State Park in Florida has birds in an outdoor exhibit without obstructing bars or mesh.   That gives a more intimate experience, and most of them are native species.  Some of these birds have been injured in some way, so they cannot fly.  Others, like the brown pelicans, are completely wild and have chosen to make nests and raise a family amid the non-native flamingos  and the native ibis, egrets, herons, ducks.
