After hiking several miles through the snow, I finally spotted a bald eagle within a reasonable distance today at the Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Tinicum.  I still did not get the elusive bald eagle keeper shot.  I captured the bird flying away from me:

Most disappointing was that my 400mm did not provide enough reach to capture this shot of an eagle flying with the Philadelphia skyline in the distance as a backdrop.  A 700mm lens would have allowed me to get much closer to the eagle while still framing it between two skyscrapers. This is a million dollar shot that simply didn't happen solely because of equipment limitations.  I will likely make it available as a small print:
