It is Freedom Friday and let’s start things off with this pic of this beautiful lady as she comes in for a landing. When I first arrived at the nest site this past Sunday, she was pretty upset.
A younger Bald Eagle had stopped by and was circling around. Bald Eagles are usually very sociable to each other – except when they have a nest and are guarding their young. They don’t play around then.
Not appreciating the visitor, she took off in hot pursuit of the interloper, chasing it down the river and out of view. It didn’t take long and she returned, landing right by her offspring and giving me a nice series of images including this one.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Take time to remember what the Memorial Day holiday is all about. Since our nation’s founding, brave men and women have given their lives in service to this great nation and we are forever indebted to them. Never forget!
