Jordan Lake: 3 Bald Eagle Nest reports, 5 photos

Captain Doug and I went cruising the lake in his boat, looking for the fledglings and parents.
All the nests have now fledged their chicks and so its hard to find the families.
The two fledglings at the H&G Nest of Godiva and Hershey.
One fledgling is just to the left of the nest, at nest brim height.
The other fledgling is way to the left in the photo and near the top – it is small so look carefully.
At First Nest we could see the nest was in good shape, but didn’t see the fledglings.
We rounded the corner to find Mom Kate looking at something way up high and ignoring us.
At Captain’s Nest we hit the jackpot and found the family at home.
This photo has both fledglings in it.
One up high over the nest and the other fledgling you can just see the roundness of the top of its head at the nest brim.
Captain Nest Dad coming in for a landing.
Captain Nest Mom, being imperious and a joy to see.

  1. Glad to hear they are okay. I have been following 2 nests, one with 1 chick and the other with triplets. All of the triplets have fledged but the single one has not.

    1. Maybe there was so much competition in the trio nest that they decided being crowded was too much and they fledged … while the singleton has no competition, so why should it leave??? Neat that the triplets all fledged!
