From far away I could see the bald eagle in the tree.
This is all I saw for several weeks. An adult bald eagle sitting low on the nest.
I didn’t get a chance to stop by the eagle’s nest near my neighborhood for several weeks. I finally stopped by thinking I was going to be disappointed since there were no babies here last year. Boy was I surprised. Not one big baby but two sitting proudly on the nest. They looked almost as big as their parents. There was a parent on the nest the entire time I was there so they were still pretty young even though they looked so big. I stayed for a while hoping to see the other parent bring in food but I couldn’t stay much longer past lunchtime. I’ll be back though. All of the above were extremely cropped.
Both babies are about the same size now.
One is flapping a little more.
I think they were fighting over scraps.
The parent looking around. The babies were on the other side of the tree trunk on the right.
It’s a big nest.
This is the 2nd time I’ve seen bluebirds hanging around near the nest. I didn’t see any last year. They’ll be leaving soon to head back up north.
The lone baby chicken is getting big. I was glad to see it doing well.
This horse was very friendly.
There were several other people there watching the eagle’s nest on my most recent trip and this horse wanted attention.
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon so I decided to stop by the eagle’s nest one more time to see how the big babies were doing. They were pretty big at this point. They looked to be the size of the parents. One was already flapping his wings pretty good. It’s peaceful there and I like seeing all of the peacocks and chickens running around. I took a ton of pictures on this trip since the weather was so nice and the birds were pretty active. I’ll post more later.
