American Family Values

American Bald Eagles with at least 1 Eaglet!



This is Mom! (Click on photos to enlarge!)




Discovered the chick yesterday! And so exciting to see the general population of eagles comeback and are thriving locally! This is the second year for this nesting site! Woohoo!

I have really enjoyed catching up on your blog this morning. You have a good variety of shots. It seems like all I can get is turkey and deer.

Ok so I squealed at your pictures! Baby bald eagle! So cute! So awesome!
I agree with you, it's really nice to see these birds bouncing back. They used to be a very rare sighting around here but they are becoming more and more common.
Thanks for sharing these photos :)

I'm so excited to have the eagles coming back in my area, too - it's always a thrill to see them. I'm envious of your having captured the eaglet, but have to admit that, like so many other birds, the babies start out pretty ugly! Thanks for sharing the photos.

That is so neat!!! I can't imagine being that close to an eagle's nest! Seeing that baby pop up must have been a REAL thrill!
