Here is a recent photo taken less than 15 miles from my home. While Bald Eagles are certainly not abundant in New Jersey, we do have breeding pairs that can be found in many counties. Expansive habitats like the Delaware River are prime fishing areas for our national bird, but they can survive off of inland lakes and ponds if the conditions are correct.
Above photo of a Bald Eagle was taken in Morris County, New Jersey. Equipment included the Tamron SP 150-600mm VC lens and the Canon EOS 7D. Exposure settings were: 1/200 F/8 ISO 400 @ 600mm.
