Eagles at Work
I was very lucky with this picture. Although you can’t see it, the adult eagle in the nest was clearly feeding chicks, pulling food from something at the edge of the nest and then feeding it to the chicks inside. I was taking pictures of that, and the other adult appeared right in the frame with something in its claws.
Majestic Bald Eagle tenderly feeding its Eaglet
This photo was taken from a far distance with a 600mm lens so as not to disturb this active nest. I was thrilled to come upon this spectacular sight of our majestic national bird so gently feeding its newly hatched chick. From what I was told, the chick was approximately 11 days old. It is amazing how gentle they are for such a large bird. This was a once in a lifetime experience for me and I am thrilled that I was able to capture this image.
