Majestic but parental

During our 6 years as resident of Anticosti, the bald eagle was our preferred subject.  His majesty and his greatness would make his encounter always enjoyable.  One spring, we were installed in our blind so that Jose could photograph the hatching.  Many times, we thought that it was happening but every time it was a partner exchange to cover the egg or eggs.  When this exchange was being done, the adults seemed to take a meticulous care by either replacing twigs around the eggs or by turning the eggs.  Finally, we never had the chance to take these pictures.  Each year, we’d arrive a few days later, the eggs would be hatch and life got back to normal.  
 Have a good day.  Louis
