Friday Morning With the Eagles
I had yesterday off because of Good Friday, so I decided to head down to Magee Marsh to catch the eagles.
I tried to get up early because they are more active in the morning. I managed to get a shot of the mother in her nest but I didn't get any shots of the eaglets.
Then I went over to the other nest. I don't think that one has hatched yet because dad was standing guard over the area.
I went back over to the other nest where the eaglets did hatch. This young eagle was perched close by.
Evidently mom thought the juvenile eagle was a little too close to nest. First she tried to call for her mate or at least express her displeasure to the young eagle.
She called out for a while and when her mate didn't come to the nest, she took matters into her own hands. Sadly, it was over quickly, so I didn't get a shot of the two eagles fighting.
With the threat gone, she returned to her nest.
She watched things a little closer this time.
I went back to the other nest. The dad had moved to another branch. He was in a tougher spot to get pictures though. I had to actually lay down so that the top branch was over his head.
He ended up flying away. I thought that perhaps he was going to get lunch but he didn't return.
As I was heading out on Ohio Route 2, I passed a group of egrets and I decided to get some pictures.
