I desperately needed a good eagle outing and this past Sunday I got one.
I stopped by a nest southwest of #Denver, Colorado that I visited quite often in years past. Long term followers of my page will remember the pair that was here as the male had passed away in a storm a year and a half ago.
Since then, another male arrived and things were looking good but then, the nest tree collapsed. Now, it appears that pair, or perhaps a new pair, has taken over the spot and is building a brand new nest in an adjacent tree.
They are making fast progress on it and during my visit it was a flurry of activity as both the male and female took many flights to grab sticks and add to the home.
Here, the male did a nice flyby on his way to grab some building material. He looked absolutely fantastic, particularly against the deep, blue, Colorado sky.
