It was early February and I was stopping by the eagle’s nest on my way out of the neighborhood almost every day (it’s a slight one street detour). I was hoping for a peek of a baby’s head but nothing so far.
I caught both adults on the nest at one point. This was a good sign.
One day I was at the nest late in the day and saw an adult flying in with a squirrel. He bypassed the nest and went to the nearest pole and started eating.
The moon was just coming up for the night. The eagle took a few bites then flew into the nest.
The eagle landed on the nest with the squirrel and looked like she or he was feeding something but I still couldn’t see anything at this point. It was a good sign that there was a baby in the nest. The nest was sunken in at the middle and was farther back than last year so that may be why I can’t see anything yet. By early February last year I could see a baby being fed but the nest was closer to the edge.
It was time to go home and get dinner ready but not before snapping the almost full moon before dark.
Very cool photo essay with the Eagles! You’ve got some great shots here
You captured some really amazing shots! We have a pair of Eagles that I know nest on our lake as we can hear and see them (and even the juveniles at time!) but I have yet to figure out where the nest is.
How wonderful to have an active eagle nest so close by and accessible.
Fingers crossed. Love the photos of the eagle and moon in the background!
These are some incredible photos!!
Oh my! That is great news! How fabulous to get to see these beautiful Eagles!
