Family tree

At Westham Island Bridge, a pair of eagles has maintained a nest for several years. This year, again, there are two chicks:

Two weeks ago, May 10th. One eaglet is barely visible.

Both parents and one eaglet head.

A few days ago. Eaglet head and shoulders.

The bill seems too large for the head. That will change.

Two youngsters. Plotting mischief while Mommy sleeps.

A couple of photographers were there with their massive digiscopers. I had to fight off an attack of envy.  Short-lived, fortunately.

  1. How great! We sometimes see Eagles soar over the cabin, but I've never found a nest. - Margy


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
