Benbow, CA, United States
Benbow CA Bald Eagle’s Nest – I watched this nest from a great distance across the river all through the season. I hiked up 26 times between February and July – through fixing up the nest, incubating, hatching and fledging of one baby Bald Eaglet. I spent about 100 hours watching. The nest was so far away I had a spotting scope set up next to my camera so I could see what I was photographing, and used a shutter release cable. We brought two groups of school children up to watch and experience the nest. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
