Jordan Lake: H&G Bald Eagle Nest has EGG(s)!
This nest is the longest reach for my camera. The first photo is Mom Godiva on lookout. The second photo is Dad Hershey in the nest. He is just to the left of the trunk of the tree; look for his yellow beak just above the nest brim. Bald eagles share incubation and brooding duties. Mom does somewhat more of the incubation duties than dad and she is the one that usually incubates during the night.

Jordan Lake: the Bald Eagle Godiva
Jordan Lake: Godiva
Godiva, mother bald eagle at H&G nest, soared from the tree line and past me. Her mass easy to see…from the huge beak, through the vast bulk of her body and into feet and talons that show the grip that is said to be about 10 times stronger than the grip of a human hand! In other words those massive talons can exert up to about 400psi. Some grip!
