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 .
The female eagle waiting for room service to deliver breakfast
The male eagle returning with a lake trout for delivery to the hungry chicks
The male dropping off his trout at the nest for the female to feed the chicks
With three chicks to feed the male goes back for more lake trout
Female eagle with two chicks, one of them is testing its wings
The third chick is much larger, and we will see as the summer goes on if the other two survive
