I've never before witnessed the beauty in a nest of Eagles. These are such awe inspiring creatures. Everything from their immense wing span that churns the air into a chaotic, maelstrom when they beat their wings with all the power of a creature made to dominate the skies. Their talons were designed for the purpose of killing and grasping onto prey that never stood a chance from the start. These birds of prey are majestic in every way and when you can watch them in their natural element it is a feeling of sheer awe to witness their dedication to family and each other. I hope to be able to spend many more hours watching them before they're gone. I only wish I'd found this nest sooner, to be there from the egg to the hatchling to the flight of the chicks.
It was really cool to watch the parent eagles take turns in feeding their chicks. While one was off hunting the other would guard over the nest, carefully watching all that was happening around them.
The first time I was watching the nest the female came back with a large fish that was quickly devoured by the four of them. The chicks ate first and only after they were finished did the parents eat. The second time I had stopped by the nest the male brought back another bird for supper... I think it was a seagull.
I am hoping to get back there again in the next couple days to see what's new in the nest.
I'll be updating this gallery often so check back on the progress of the Eagles of Signal :)
