New Neighbors - Two Bald Eagles!

New neighbors moved in down the hill. Bald eagles! The first to nest here in over a century, and they are about eight miles from our home. Welcome!

The nest is nearly five feet wide and one foot deep to hold the couple and their two eggs. If fertile, the eaglets will be here in a couple of weeks! Pretty fun for us Californians.

  2. Fantastic. Such awesome, big birds. We have them in CO but it was six years until I saw one with my own eyes, ironically on a mundane lunch break at a suburban lake. It dwarfed the huge crow nearby, which was scamming its fishing scraps.

  3. Great image, and thanks for the good news about their return to the area. I hope it goes well for 'em.

    MtnRunner2 is right: The size of so many bird species is just amazing, whether it is owls, eagles, hawks or the crows you mention.
