Winged love

Since I’m talking of breeding period, let’s go back to my bald eagle couple.  On the second day passed in our blind at more that 30 feet in the air, it’s my spouse, Jose Schell, that had the honor to photograph the first breeding session of the bald eagles.  Luckily, she was able to take two pictures even though the scene was only for a short period.  In fact, we witnessed many breeding sessions the following days but the sessions would only last a few seconds only.  Fortunately for us, we were warned by their shrill cry before they would actually do the act, otherwise we wouldn’t have been ready.  During this breeding period, this couple would not stay more than 15 to 20 minutes per day at their nest.  Which wasn’t much of action for 14 jours of observation.

Have a good day.
