    Saturday afternoon (5/13) a juvie eagle and it crow escort made circles over the marina as they worked their way north. I took these from the marsh. For once, back lighting and shadows were not a problem.

    Thursday afternoon (5/18/17) I mounted the 5DIII + 5600L + 1.4x teleconverter on a tripod and pulled up a lawn chair to photograph the Pt. Edwards eagles' nest.

    The male was perched atop the sentry tree across the street from the nest.

    The female came flying in with what looked like a clump of grass and dirt. I thought it was a little late in the season for her to be building on to the nest.

    Guess who popped up to watch mom? I believe this is the Pt. Edwards pair's first baby since 2014.

    I was having trouble with the viewing screen of the 5DIII, so I swapped cameras and took a few more photos with the 7DII.

    Watching junior.

    Mom took off and returned with more plant material. I'll try to find out more about this behavior.

    Dad had departed, so she may have been waiting for him to return with junior's dinner. Notice how dirty her beak is, as though she was digging in the dirt for something.

    Eagle inventory, part 2: Monday (5/22/17).

    No eaglets are visible in the Deer Creek nest, but the female is behaving like there are babies in the nest. She is upright much of the time instead of lying very low in the nest.

    I could not find a nest. One of the eagles has been perching by itself on the spar in the park as though it is a sentry tree for a nearby nest.
