The Pee Aaa Eagles ...looking good

Recommended Posts

Did some ice fishing this weekend and the lake we were on had a nesting pair. Caught some dink bluegills and small northerns so gave the pair a shore lunch! :) Don't much care for the tree they built their nest in tho. About ready to tip over into the lake. :(

Cool picture Jim.    Yeah, hope that tree falls after the eaglets fledge this summer.  

    I have one of my favorite ladder stands in a dead tree. I took 5 archery buck  there in the last 7 years.

  Hate to leave the spot, but I plan to move it this spring.     It's just too scary when the wind kicks up.

That is a really strong stable looking nest.  I have also been watching this female eagle for about 5 years.  Her mate was killed 3 years ago and she took another mate.  They hatched and fledged 2 eaglets their first year, then last year both eggs failed to hatch.    This year the nest has collapsed  two times, but they have it rebuilt and should be laying in three weeks.

Are you kidding?  I couldn't handle that mob!  It was a great game though, fun to watch, unlike the last couple.

 

My son said he was going down to Philly to catch the action after the game.  I haven't heard from him since, I suppose I should call him. :think:

 

How about you?

I'm actually a Steelers fan,   I have high hopes for the Eagles.   If  Foles stays in the zone he was in last night...we have a shot.

We have tons of Eagles a few miles from me in the refuge as well as Ospreys. 

 

And by the way, The Vikes Blow!

I think she laid the first egg on Tue.               The second should follow soon.       She has been keeping this first egg cool to delay the incubation so #2 can catch up and hatch together on the same day.

 

Some watchers were concerned when she was a week late.    But I think Mother Nature knew the pair was too busy rebuilding the nest after it collapsed in Jan. and gave them more time to rebuild.   And what a great job they did.    The nest looks solid now.

My buddy (Mike O.) runs eagle viewing tours out of his pontoon on the James; quite an estuary you have down there!  

 

I used to opt for his other offering... Bluecat tours but you usually get the best of both worlds when you're haulin' in the big girls.
