Bald Eagle on Back Neck Rd.

Eagle Manor is the last home on Back Neck Rd. in Fairfield Township, NJ. Past Eagle Manor, the Back Neck Rd. proceeds into the wilderness of Dix Wildlife Management Area and eventually turns into a dirt road best navigated on foot or by jeep. Those who venture further are handsomely rewarded with raptor views unparalleled anywhere else in New Jersey. On this day we caught an immature bald eagle perched high in a dead tree. The close up pictures are a little grainy due to the distance.
