The Eagles Have Been Busy!

No sooner had I gotten home from Whittier Middle School’s 5K race today,  I found hubby and Cookie heading out for a walk to the lake.  I quickly switched camera lenses and joined them.   When we got there, I couldn’t believe my eyes . . . .

but let me  back track a bit.

Remember how the eagle nest fell at the end of August?

This is what it looked like when I kayaked in September  . . .

And what it looked like 3 weeks ago . . .

I was sooooo worried the eagles wouldn’t stay, even though I’d read  they might rebuild if they’d had successful nests in the past.  And we all know these two certainly were! Most years they had two babies and then Triplets in 2012!

Still, I had faith . . . and look what I witnessed today!

Not only was this adult on the new nest, but two trees over was the second adult!

I am sooooo relieved to know I’ll have some more time to study these marvelous creatures.

      You’re welcome! I knew my campers would be excited to know we’d have another year watching another eagle family.

      I’m always in awe of them – the way they sit so regally and look down on everything. I’m going to try to get out on the lake today .. . . hopefully the wind doesn’t pick up too much!
