Thanks Boily,,if you want to capture these so bad then why don`t you drive down here.I`m on vacation for at least another week,not sure where i`d put you up for sleeping but i`m sure i could work something out.It would be a cheap trip you`ll just need spending money for food,,,and beer money of course..I`m more than willing to help anyone that wants to see this site.It`s really something worth shooting as i hear the chances of three eaglets actually all surviving in one nest is quite rare.The actual nest is about 30 feet from the road and another 35-40 feet (i think) straight up..I also have a pilated woodpecker nest scoped out in a tree about 15 minutes walk into the woods nearby.Ther are more holes in the trees arround that area from them and also Downey Woodpeckers than you can count..Really cool seeing the perfectly round holes drilled into the trees by these guys...

Thanks DAWG,,yes i count myself as very lucky,most people never get a chance to see one in the wild at all,and getting this close is just amazing..we sit out in our lawn chairs for hours just watching them..

Outstanding photos!! I have seen a few Bald Eagles in the swamps back home in Louisiana but nothing like yours. They look like they should be flying in a couple of weeks or at least the one fledging looks like he is ready to fly.
