Treetop Eagle

As you may recall from the June post ‘Eagle Family Portrait’, I was fortunate enough to be able to spend that particular day watching this male bald eagle and his partner at their nest site with two young chicks in the nest. The June post showed mom and the chicks in the nest and this shot of the male bird is when he came in and sat protecting the nest from above whilst the female flew off to catch some fish for the chicks. He didn’t go down on the nest on this occasion, not even when the female returned, he just stood guard from above the whole time, calling out once an a while to his mate until she got back.
