Mostly Eagles

There is a certain attraction to visiting the eagles nest. As much as I want to start looking for migrating warblers passing through, I want to see what’s happening at the eagles nest. The eagles were active yesterday adding a couple sticks to the nest and grass. Feeding the young. What looks like the oldest eaglet a couple time picked up the end of a stick and moved it around. Imitating the adults that did a little rearainging earlier I spose’.  The adults brought in two fish while I was there observing. Both times I was not in a good position to capture it or the light was bad. A lot of white sky today as the clouds got heavier and heavier as the day went on. One odd thing was the eagles mated a couple times in the morning. I did have one migrating bird land nearby, a Yellow Throated Warbler. On the way home at the end of the day I caught a Pied Billed Grebe yawning. The yawn matched the way I was feeling tired and ready for rest after being outdoors all day.

  1. You’d think with a fish in the nest right in front of them that the eaglets could tear off what they wanted, but I guess not.
    I’ve been splitting wood all day so I know just how that grebe feels!
    I like the flashback photo!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      It takes the young eaglets a while before they can tear apart a fish themselves. One of the eaglets can already take large pieces the smallest is still getting fed tiny bits. Splitting wood will do that an make for a good nights sleep. Thank You.
