My World Lately



Holy moose-poops!  This has been a banner few weeks.  The Robins were here in droves. 




The Eastern Bluebirds are sitting on eggs. 
  


  Hearing their infamous sound drink your tea, drink your tea, the Eastern Towhees have infiltrated our surrounding brush. 




And the eagles...



 Well, the eagles soared over the yard all week, announcing their presence, and using the same path they took last year to and from the river.  Of course, we are only seeing one at a time as they go to and from the nest.



Now, sitting on eggs, the adults are taking turns as they do...four hour shifts.  I think the eggs should be hatching soon as it only takes about 35 days for incubation.



Oh and the hawks are still hunting and hanging out near the feeders too.
As long as they stay out of the way when it comes time to feed the young chicks, there shouldn't be a problem.



Sharing my world lately with you and those at





Have you seen any interesting things in your world lately?
(and I don't mean your spouse...LOL!!!)

Too bad you don't have a video camera permanently aimed at the nest.

Beautiful images! and I'm wondering where I should go to see the eagles.. any tips? Where along the river?

Busy, busy around your yard and I love all the bird activity.
We have something that has burrowed under the deck where the snowblower is kept and I'm waiting to see who is moving in. Sure hope it's not more rabbits!

bob says our osprey nests, two of them at bray park, are full of babies. he can hear them and see the mom and dad flying in with fish, but to high to see the babies. i tried several times in the past to get the babies and could not. awesome pic of the nest... and i love that last photo.. spring is there with all those birds.

That is an awesome eagle nest! And I enjoy the Towhee and the grape hyacinth as well. A lovely and fierce eagle shot!!

Spring has certainly sprung there. We've been seeing quite a few more birds at our feeder lately.
That eagle nest is just amazing.

Wow, lots of great birds there. My favorite are the bluebirds. I love the Towhee too. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Mostly squirrels in my world. The birds don't stand much of a chance at the bird feeder.

I've been watching the Peregrine Falcons that nest on top of a building in Jersey City online. Been doing this for years, but this year they've moved the webcam to a different online site. And she didn't lay any eggs so they gave them some eggs to sit on...a falcon egg and some chicken eggs. They think she's around 14 years old and maybe too old now. I don't think they expect them to hatch. They're just giving them eggs so they can put in a foster chick later on. I find all of this very interesting. :) Take a look: http://www.conservewildlifenj.org/education/falconcam/

Hi It is wonderful that you have eagles flying overhead near you garden and great that you found their nest. How we will await the babies.I hope you will be able to photograph them as they grow.
