I’ve been watching this nest for a while. I hike out a couple of times a week hoping to catch a glimpse. I finally saw the female peaking at me. It won’t be long now! I snapped this one from the ground across the river… 60 yards or more away.
From another nest with a web cam, I’m watching this pair. They are near the same latitude so hopefully it will give me a clue when to look for eaglets to appear in the nest above.
