Eagle Nest Photography

Share This!

Spring is the time to find a bald eagle nest and get some photos of the parents feeding the chicks. This nest was 70 feet in the air, and all of the photos were taken either from a kayak or in the marsh below the nest. You sometimes need to find an innovative way to get those shots!

As you can see from the photos, one chick is much larger than the other two. As the summer goes on I will update the growth of the chicks and see which ones survive as they fledge .

Another fellow veterinarian on the trip. His endless wit and sense of humor (even though he looks kinda funny he is much smarter than he looks) kept us entertained for hours. We even got him to eat his vegetables one night.
