Bald Eagle

Haliaeetus leucocephalus


The female was sitting on the nest with babies. Male was posing beautifully on a nearby branch.


pine tree in riparian forest


This nest has been used by this pair of eagles for 20-25 years. It is ~8 ft. across and weighs ~2000 lbs. This pair is considered the parents (or grandparents, I suppose) of all the bald eagles in the area.
