Something New

After so many years of observing eagles it is getting where I rarely see anything new. The Osprey when here in spring and summer build many nests in power towers below the dam and raise young there. In the winter when the Osprey have migrated back south it is not unusual to see an eagle in one of these towers or in an Osprey nest when food is scarce. It appears this fall that a young eagle pair has decided to try and takeover and use one of these nests. They have been returning to this nest and bringing in sticks since I returned from vacation. There is not a lot of room in the nest and the eagles bump in to each other when one comes in with a stick and one is already in the nest. Also they can only fly in on one side with a stick it appears. They can fly out from both sides. It will be interesting to see if they do choose this as their nesting spot and try to raise young in it. It would also be interesting to observe the action when the Osprey return in the spring…

    I just saw crows scare an eagle off a couple of weeks ago so maybe an osprey could too. Nice shots of the pelicans and raccoon!

    The Eagles trying out Osprey Nest, don’t look too happy with each other. I wonder how young could possibly spread wings as they grow and strengthen those wings to fly. It will be interesting to watch, if the pair will stay in that nest. Enjoyed the racoon pictures too.
