It was late February and I was stopping by the neighborhood eagle’s nest every couple of days. One morning I caught the parent bringing in a fish for breakfast. Now they were just dropping off the food and letting the babies eat on their own.
At least one parent was still hanging close to the nest.
At one point an osprey flew close to the nest and the eagle was yelling at him to leave.
One of the babies was flapping his new wings and you could still see the pin feathers.
Finally, I could get a decent shot of both of the babies sitting up. The younger one seemed to sleep a lot and wasn’t flapping yet.
The kestrel couple landed on the wire nearby.
A few other birds that came by the nest was a phoebe and a brown thrasher.
I could see a red shoulder hawk far away on the other side of the field.
A great egret flies right over my head.
