Parent sitting in a nearby tree.
I don't know what it was watching.
One of the babies standing on the nest.
One baby was trying to talk to the other one (who is hiding behind the pine needles).
The other baby did not move from this spot.
This is probably my last check on the eagle family at Honeymoon Island. Both babies seem to be doing fine and they are probably flying by now. This was taken two weeks ago. The nest is closed off by more than 500 feet (which is the legal limit on public land). It's probably more like 800 feet. This family was far away and the pictures are extremely cropped. During my visit, one of the parents flew into a tree that was closer to the trail. It sat there for a few minutes and was watching something. Eventually it flew off into the distance. I do want to go back to check on the osprey nests in the next couple of weeks but by then the eagles will probably be gone. Oh well, until next year!
