ROMEO AND JULIETTE

Many people have asked me over time, “how do you tell the difference between the females and males”?

The above two shots show the best comparison. A female eagle is about a 1/3 larger than the male. Romeo is on the left with Juliette in behind on the right. You can see how the females beak is much larger. A males head/beak contour is more streamlined.

It’s hard to tell in the beginning but If you pay attention to the beak head ratio,you’ll be able to tell If Its a female or a male zipping past at mach one!

Note: Juliette is further away than Romeo but appears larger. I’m guessing that she’s about 4 feet behind Romeo. If she was right beside Romeo she would appear even larger.

  1. Just beautiful Wayne, I love these two, and you can really see the difference with them that close. I went down to the river yesterday and was quite a few, but they were just to far away. I could not tell girl from boy. In my post I am going to say all males again.
