Another new eagle nest!! This one is even closer than the one I normally frequent. It wasn’t too hard to find but I found out about it late in the day. The sun had set and while there was a little bit of light there wasn’t enough for my camera to cooperate. This is the biggest nest I have seen so far….it’s huge and has an almost cone shape.
The nest is right on the edge of a lake, and only visible while driving over a bridge. Here’s the part where I’m not so smart….I found a weird place to pull off the road. It was like a grass driveway and a square empty patch of grass. There was no posted no trespassing sign but I left the Girl in the car just in case. Besides, I would never let her walk down that road. I did but I was careful, when I got close to the bridge it was a little bit more difficult. I’m not completely crazy and did not go on to the actual “over the water part”.
I’m glad I went but disappointed that I wasn’t able to get a good picture. The nest amazes me so I’m glad I was able to capture that at least. It’s blurry but you can see the huge cone shaped nest.
I used the ‘vivid’ filter so you can see it better, it’s so big! I also had to drive by Cockroach’s mother’s house twice. I haven’t been that way in so long and so much has changed. It happened to be the fastest way there and I was losing light so I did what I had to do to see an eagle and find the nest. Now I have to come up with a plan to go back with better light….a safer plan. Because I am definitely going back and before there are leaves on the trees.
This was the highlight of my day, as you can tell. I don’t really have much else to report but it’s only Monday….Zia
