Looks as if this eagle is about to attack the boat but in fact is picking up some discarded redfish.

Some gulls are not happy about the eagle getting their meal.

Outstanding work, Joe. How did you manage to get that close to an eagle's nest?

I have a long term study monitoring eagle populations in a bay undergoing industrialization. Part of that monitoring includes banding young birds which requires me to climb into their nests. This one was a large nest on a ledge which had enough room for both myself and the chick.

What a magical experience to be in the same nest with one of these little raptors. Lovely story and shots. Keep the nest ones coming in, love seeing those chicks.

Here is another chick from a different nest taken on the same day. Note the development difference.
