    Eagle nest is getting pretty active. Eaglets should be hatching in the next 7-10 days. Here a few snaps of pops bring in what appears to be the a piece of Moorhen. He drop the food off in the nest, Mama picked it up and flew off to another location to eat while he sat on the eggs.

    Going to be another great season with this pair! Love that red on the beaks!

    p.s. the male is smaller and is missing a talon on his left foot (thats how I know who is who.)

    Yeah... all I got living in the city are pigeons, gulls, ducks, and geese...

    Great shots. Well composed. Well exposed. Sharp. Very well done.

    Thanks....Well believe it or not this nest in a Cemetery in the Middle of DownTown Orlando....I also get Red Foxes at the same location.
    I am standing about 75 feet away from the nest so i can get a good angle on the shot. I can walk up to the tree and touch it, but i don't so I wont spook the Eagles.
