Inviting me to come along to investigate a new Bald Eagle nest reported in our area, Boss was as unsure as I was when we introduced ourselves to the farmer who owned the property. After speaking with him, we discovered that the nest was not located on his property but the adjacent piece which was owned by someone else. Then in speaking with that property owner, he told us that he didn't want anyone on his property and that he would key an eye on it for us. However, we are sure he will do a great job as he seemed "really into it" if you know what I mean. It's all about "Citizen Scientists"...that's what we were looking for and need.
Pulling into the graveyard, the nest is far in the distance requiring me to use my scope more than a camera. Because of the height of the nest along with the rim, I have been unable to get a chick count, although I definitely saw ONE.
Comparatively speaking the nest a the park is much more accessible allowing me to confirm TWO chicks this season. The male is doing a great job supplying food for the family and babysitting when the "Mrs" needs a break.
seeing, saying, and sharing...
