Right when I got to the eagle’s nest, one of the parents flew in with a fish. I thought this was a good sign of a baby.
Bringing home the bacon!
I’m still wondering if he just brought the fish for Mom while she’s still sitting on eggs.
All of a sudden, a little gray fuzzy head popped up. I could just barely make out the baby. Looks like dad was feeding him the fish since he had a little piece hanging off his beak.
Mom started howling at something.
Crows were flying by and coming close to the nest.
On the other side of the nest, one of the parents was resting on a branch.
A little over a week later, I stopped by the nest again and you could see how much the baby had grown. He was yelling at the robin over his head. Those little birds are brave.
He was going to be a beauty.
The light is bad there. Mostly backlit or sidelit. I can’t get to the other side since there’s a farm there. The baby was growing up fast. From tiny fuzz to almost looking like the parent in a short time. This was in late January. After another visit I realized there were two babies. More on those later.
