Description

I’m fortunate to have an active Bald Eagle nest near our property. It has been in constant use since 2010, and this year we were blessed to have three eaglets hatch and fledge. The adult eagles are quite used to my presence, and I have a very large/long lens that I used for this photo, so I wasn’t as close as it appears from the image. I also never spend more than a few minutes in any location, so the birds do not get disturbed in any way. In fact, they often seem interested in what I’m doing!
