While this nest is one of the easiest to view, the lighting never seems right and with cloudy, rainy conditions when I tried to shoot these photos, I was again disappointed with the lighting.
This Eagle flew in bringing a fish to the young.
She landed on the nest and proceeded to feed her Eaglets.
I counted at least two Eaglets on the nest. Eventually, the other adult Bald Eagle flew in, but with the sun already down and the light fading the shots didn’t turn out very well.
While parked in front of an Eagle’s nest, at sundown, I noticed some geese on a nearby creek. The Eagles weren’t doing much, just sitting on their nest and not really giving me much to shoot, so I took a few photos of the geese. Eventually, I heard these same geese beginning to fuss about something, so I took out my binoculars to scan the area around the geese to see what they were fussing about. With the sun below the horizon, the available ground level light was terrible, but if you folks remember, terrible light never stops me from trying to take a picture. Here’s what the geese were fussing about.
A dozen deer cautiously approached the creek in order drink. The didn’t react well to my attempts to move closer either. As soon as I moved they scattered back into the hills, and deeper down the valley.
And the Eagles sat safely watching from the comfort of their nest.
Both of the Eagles, which have lived in the town where I live for years now, have returned . Both had ventured off the nest yesterday, which probably means the Eaglets have hatched. I’m a bit out of practice but have decided damn the knee, the weather is beautiful and it’s time to leave the couch.
