Last weekend I made my first visit in a couple of months to this nest southwest of Denver. This pair of Bald Eagles has two eaglets that are just about ready to fledge. They are nearly as big as their parents and keeping them fed takes a lot of work I am sure.
I was fortunate enough to capture an entire sequence of images of mom as she brought in a good sized fish for them to have for breakfast. I’m really pleased with this image and series as while I have gotten plenty of ‘eagle and fish’ pictures, the fish are usually small or the pics just aren’t that great. This one has to be the best of that type of image I have captured.
As for those two young ones, within a couple of weeks they will be taking that first flight. They will continue to hang out at the nest for a while, learning how to hunt and fish on their own. By the end of summer, they will move on into this great big world alone.
