Eagle’s Nest

Went on a new trail specifically to spot this nest and hopefully see the residents. Apparently there are eaglets there, however  there was no activity when I came .Perhaps  my timing was off-would be worth another trip. Just to see the size of the nest was awe-inspiring and it was the most I have walked in a long time 4 km return. It doesn’t sound far but I couldn’t even make it one city block a few months ago. It was actually hot outside , a true summer’s day.

  2. That’s an excellent look at the nest Jane. Those nests can be huge – some weigh several tons.

  5. Sorry that you didn’t get to see the eagles, but the photo of the nest in itself was interesting. It looks huge.

  6. Great eagle nest capture, Jane! Now it is a must that you return time and again to watch this nest grow and the family within. 🙂 An eagle’s nest can grow to an impressive size of 10 feet in diameter, 12 feet deep, with a weight of up to 2 tons as they add to it year after year. I have been photographing for three years now an eagle’s nest that I spotted on our local Wye River from our boat. I still request a drive-by when asked where do I want to go boating, and get excited every time we go pass it!
