incubation

     For those of you new to my Journey, I watch a nest of bald eagles on Jordan Lake every year.  I try hard to get the best photos I can at the long distances needed to not disturb the parents.  I call the eagle pair Kate and Petruchio.  They are starting their 4th year of raising eaglets.  In this photo Kate has begun brooding / incubating her egg(s)!  All you can see of her is the upper half of her head, beak facing to the right, bright eye on alert.  I watched Petruchio, her mate, bring her a fish yesterday but it was too dark to get a photo.
