Between Rain Storms

I got lucky when I went out between rainstorms yesterday. Caught the male eagle at one nest. The intruder from the day before was back. Once again the male would try to chase the intruder off only to have it return later.

Will post more of the action tomorrow. The male at the nest active bringing in a couple sticks. Flying out of the nest with fish remains to eat it on a branch. There are a few possibilities about the intruder hanging around the nest. One that it may be wanting to steal food? Or possibly the male had stolen the fish from the intruder and it kept coming back to see if it could steal any remains? There were a lot of fish scale son the intruders beak. With all the rain we had yesterday and forecast for today I did not expect to be able to get out much and for sure did not think I would catch so much activity in that short time period. Will head out sometime today. Will try and find time to post more of yesterday’s lucky catch in a post tomorrow…

    This dueling seems to be mighty persistent. I assume there are both male. Where is the female to share the nest? Great pictures all around.

      Ellen Bunnell,
      It is persistant. Seems as if the male from the nest can’t drive this immature male off. Have not seen the female since they mated I think five days ago. They usually lay eggs five to ten days after a good mating. Thank You…

  3. Lots of action! I’m glad you didn’t miss it.
    I didn’t know eagles could move such big branches!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      Got lucky for sure. It is surprising the size of branches they can fly with and shift in the nest. Sometimes they move around and around with them trying to find the right spot…
