A quick post today, as we’re frantically trying to get the campground ready to open on May 1st. The late winter weather has put us behind schedule a little bit, which is kind of funny, because Cooper’s third adventure opens very similarly!
But you know me, I can’t resist a walk on a beautiful day. Especially when a friend comes to visit.
Linda and I were lakeside watching the eagles when I saw one little gray fuzzball moving up and down. Then a wing, then the head again.
I snapped picture after picture, not really sure if I was getting anything or not.
But I did!
I hoped there were two, so I kept my camera lens trained on the nest. But after 15 or 20 minutes I said to Linda, “I guess there’s only one. Or only one strong enough to lift his head high enough. Let’s -”
The eagle shifted in the nest. And I saw it.
Two gray fuzzballs. Yet, how could I be sure the second one wasn’t a wing?
Because she fed it!
Year after year I monitor the eagles and watch their behavior. I love watching them feed and care for their little ones. This is the nest that inspired Mystery of the Eagles Nest.
Isn’t it impressive?
