Here are some Mother/Child photos from this weekend . . .
Not the two legged kind . . . but the two winged kind.
Yesterday Tami and I watched as Mom eagle left the nest over and over again. At first we thought it was because of all the boaters taking advantage of the beautiful weather. She’d fly to a nearby tree, but stay within eyesight of her babies.
They’d cry. She’d go back. Then fly off again to a nearby tree. They’d cry. She’d circle the nest.
Until finally, she took pity on them and landed.
The next thing we saw, was her dragging something large across the nest, and for a second I thought she’d throw out a baby! But Tami quickly said, “Oh, no! Look again, Maxx. It’s a fish. A really big fish!”
Mom Eagle started ripping that fish apart, and fed her little ones . . . one by one.
When they were full, they snuggled in around her. Safe and sound.
How adorable is that??
