The eagles return to this area for nesting each fall. Some of the trees in the area die and/or fall during the summer months. This is the tree where the adults liked to hang out this year. I am not sure it will be standing next year. The nest is about 50 yards away.

1. Not much life on the "favorite" tree. Two weeks after I took this image the small branch at the top broke off the tree.

2. One adult at the top of the tree. Before I got to Florida in early March there were many opportunities to photograph the adults bringing material to improve the nest. By early March they hung around a lot. Some days you could watch them for hours without seeing a single flight.

3. Caught this one just as he took off. The main fishing area is at least a half mile away. I did not see him return that day.

Thanks Dan. Looking at the images now I am very happy to have been there watching them. However, on the day you are there, waiting for some flight shots, I do get antsy waiting for something to happen.
