Our Eagles Are Nesting – 2016

On Saturday, I trudged through the campground, over ice and snow to go lakeside, where I found one of the eagles  perched on the back side of the nest.

As I watched, she turned to face away from me.   Then after a few moments, she cried out once, twice.

Then she turned to poke around in the nest with her beak before slowly walking down into the nest to sit low inside it.

It’s very possible I witness our eagle laying one of her eggs!

35 days from now, if all goes well, our eagle chicks will be hatching! Send good thoughts everyone!
