After all the hub-bub about the Eagle -cam, I decided last week to take a swing by the area where the Bald Eagles had a nest by the power plant. (As I mentioned in the Science Section). Well, the platform is still there, but no nest on it. I did see an Eagle perching on top of the tower though! I pulled to the side of the road and noticed to the right of the tower and set further back, a tall pine tree, with a huge nest towards the top of it. Eureaka!
Mr. TS and I went there yesterday afternoon to see what we could see. Of course, we could see the nest but even with binoculars we couldn't tell if there was anything in the nest. I don't really know how far off the road the tree is or how high up the nest is, I'm not good at judging those things. It wasn't really close though.
Mr. TS was getting impatient when all of a sudden an Eagle flies into view and lands at the nest. Then we could see the other Eagle in the nest. (very exciting) We watched for awhile and then headed home being it was starting to rain.
Pix? Well, no. "Someone" took the camera off the charger and it lost it's charge. (
I plan on stopping there again one evening this week to see if I can get some photos. If I do, I will post them here.
Oh, you would think a large bird that builds a HUGE nest would pick a strong tree....this pine looks like it could topple over at any minute.
