Jordan Lake Bald Eagle nest report: First Nest, 4 photos 05-04-2019

First Nest
Even if you ARE a bald eagle, some birds just don’t give you any leeway.
The eastern kingbird took great offense that Cacao flew too close to its nest.
The parent kingbird (about the size of a robin) promptly chased Cacao out of the area.
BTW I have seen kingbirds actually land on the backs of both adult and juvenile eagles.
Looks like a jet landing on an aircraft carrier.
Sometimes the kingbird gives the eagle a peck for good measure!  But, not in this series.
