Description

An eagle pair has nested near our property in Central Illinois since 2010. Each year the nest does get larger! This year two eaglets hatched, and my best guess about the pose of the adult eagle in this photo is that it was either soaking up some morning sunshine or shielding the young eaglets from the bright sun.
