Default Eagles Nest

Not great photos, taken from great distance, but interesting story. I followed this nest last year when this pair raised two chicks to fledge succesfully. The couple is back this year and during feeding today three Fuzzy heads were being fed. If they all make it, that will be one crowded nest. When ready to fledge the chicks are as big as the adults.

Hopefully more to come on this family.

Nice job Ed,
you must be a couple weeks ahead of us, I haven't seen any hatch-lings yet.

That last shot is certainly one pose you don't see very often. I could think of a couple different captions for it.

A few weeks ago I think it was Nova that had a show on eagles and their nesting habits. Your photos remind me of that.

Very nicely done. Hope all three survive. In the show there was one nest that had only two chicks of which one wasn't doing well. But, he did end up surviving in the end.

Ed - fascinating views - great job despite the distance. And I'm sure the Eagle family is glad you kept your distance! Thanks for sharing these.
