Bald Eagle Update

I have been going back out to the Bald Eagle nest to see how the pair has fared. They laid their egg(s) back at the beginning of March. Now there is a pretty large eaglet in the nest. In the first photo, the female is sitting in a nearby roost tree.

Here is a wider angle view of the nest tree. The silver maples in full leaf in the foreground make it harder to find the nest in the sycamore.

Here is a zoomed in crop of the nest. See if you can find the eaglet. He is pretty brown and has a gray beak. Bald Eagles do not get the full white head and tail for four to five years. It is a little bit of a challenge to locate the nestling at this distance in poor light, but it is possible.
