It’s a Bird, a Plane, It’s….

….An eagle’s nest! On Tuesday, February 28th, Ted and I took a walk in the woods and unintentionally startled an eagle sitting on its nest. As the wings of the bird whooshed close overhead, its cries were clear and piercing, like nothing we’d heard before. Soon two birds were circling in the sky above and continued to call to one another or were they warning us away? We stayed on the trail as it meandered up over a ridge and down. After traveling some distance, we looked back and could just barely see the nest through the trees as it was fairly well-hidden.  Ted took this shot with a telephoto lense while standing a couple hundred yards away.  The birds continued their flight and calls until we departed and were out of earshot.eagle-nest
