Still no Mom Ranger.  Dad Ranger spent the morning waiting, calling and occasionally chasing off immature eagles.  I know all of us are worried about both parents.  Ranger Dad will continue to guard the nest – bald eagles are very territorial and visit their nests all year around, even when they don’t have a family of young in the nest. Bald eagles use the same nest each season. For that reason eagle nests and eagle nest trees are as highly protected as the bird itself.  We will continue to wait and see what happens over the next few days.
