Just a couple days ago, I was lakeside, when suddenly, the female eagle cried out several times. I looked up, down, and all around, but I couldn’t see anything more than a lone goose, swimming along in front of their island.
Then she stopped and looked up expectantly.
And I saw him, in the distance. He circled and circled and circled the nest, eventually coming in for a landing.
He stood watch while she ate and cared for the eaglets.
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating . . . eagles are great parents!
