Between hunting to feed his family and performing home maintenance, this Bald Eagle is one busy guy. On my visit to this nest last weekend, Dad wasn’t around but a brief period of time. Perhaps he just needed a break from Mom and his new eaglet. 😉
On one visit, he demonstrated that he wasn’t being entirely negligent by grabbing some grass from a nearby field to help with maintaining the family home. When he returned, he circled once, then carefully placed it in the nest giving me some nice flight images.
The skies were overcast which is a bummer but I still like this image quite a lot. The aggressive, focused look on the raptor’s face, the wing position, etc all work well. Have a great weekend, everyone!
