Bald Eaglets Branching

I hope you are staying cool and hydrated as possible during this heat wave. It's brutal out there. Thank God for air conditioning. I don't know how I survived as a child without it!!! Ok, now I sound old! :-)
I've made two visits to the Bald Eagle nest since my last post. The eaglets have branched but they haven't fledged yet. One of them is more dominant and branches out much more than the other one, who is not as brave yet.

Notice the smaller eaglet is just at the edge of the nest in this next photo. He/she is still not confident enough to take the step out.

Breakfast delivery this morning from one of the adults....

Bald Eagle Nest Update

I haven't been able to get out shooting for a few weeks. The last time I was out with my camera was to visit the bald eagle nest. These photos are from about two weeks ago. The eaglets have gotten so big. They no longer have any more fuzzys on their wings or body. It's all real feathers now.

They're really getting big, right? A friend of mine was down there the other day and said that the eaglets haven't fledged the nest yet. I'm hoping to get down there next week. Perhaps I will get lucky and hit it as they branch out or fledge. 
As always, enlarge photos for better viewing.

Wordless Wednesday

Ok......maybe just a few words......This is one of the many cranberry bogs that we have here in Plymouth County MA where I live. I was walking along this bog one early morning a few weeks ago with my camera as the sprinklers were doing their typical morning thing. I noticed the bicyclist in the distance and here's my shot! As always, enlarge for better view.

Bald Eagle Nest

The eaglets have grown so quickly at the nest which I've been visiting this Spring. I would guess they are probably 7 or 8 weeks old and it boggles my mind how big they are already. Mama no longer is in the nest with them. I'm sure she must be very happy about that. One of the adults came along yesterday with a large fish. I was excited and assumed the adult would land in the nest with the fish.......but nope.......the adult did a fly by the nest with the fish......verbally communicated with the eaglets, and then flew to a distant tree where it devoured the fish.

This is the other adult who also did a fly by the nest about 45 minutes later after the one with the fish came by.

Here is the nest with the two eaglets......

I've really been enjoying following this family. Click on the photos to enlarge!
