Jordan Lake. LL&H nest. I don’t know if there’s a second chick in the nest or not. The chick appears to be somewhere around five weeks of age… I don’t know the actual hatch date. Like all bald eagle chicks, this one is very alert to see what it’s parent is doing! I took this photo a couple of days ago in the sunshine and thought: you know, this gray morning we could do with some brightness and light. Enjoy!
I want to say Thank You for all the wonderful responses to my 2 new eBooks and to the interview with Frank Stachio on The State of Things. During the eagle lecture at the Jordan Lake State Recreation Area on Saturday there were all kinds of good questions and the sharing of each other’s interactions with eagles. All of you helped make last week full of blessings and gratitude!
Lady Lake cruised past me, elegant and sure of herself.
I didn’t see Heritage her mate but I am sure he was close by.
This bright American goldfinch was way at the top of a tree. Usually I see them in the tall grasses.
American crows, caught in the right light, are iridescent. This one had a bite of fish for his fledgling.
The male ospreys are working hard to feed their chicks.
Nests always need repair. Ospreys tend to like branches all twisted and with lots of forks.
