    Not the best picture but the best I've got.
     
  2. Gary I have always considered this qality photo as an info photo on the nesting for the year. The camera records times and dates so you don't have to. Any time I visit a nest it is always the same thing, long range photos but good enough so I can ship them with the info to the endangered species unit here. This is a great way to keep track of their age as we band at about 5 to 6 weeks. Getting this info is very important and not the quality of the picture so keep taking them at least once a week as that way you can do two things. #1 you get to check conditions around and at the nest,(without going close) #2 you have now been able to take more photos for your info bank and if you have one a Dept. that would be involved with the eagles. Here in New York this youngster would be just about ready to be banded and maybe some blood work. Keep checking but keep that distance unless you get an emergency. The photo is pretty good for what I would think taken from a distance.

  3. Thanks Lou

    Yes the documenting of birds, hatches and locations is a critical part of Evalutating eagle population and health. All of shots are a distance that assures a non threathing position. Non of the parents to this Eaglet has been banded indicating they are native birds or Raised from released birds.

    I think that is a lovely image. I would be really happy to have that and be able to observe and record.

    I think that's a great image.
     
  6. Thanks Gale

    It is for the record so great Art wasn't the prime reason for the shot.

    Thanks Dianne

    Not one of my best but it was for the record not art.

    Thank You Bear

    It is just Dark and shadows in the nest
    and hard to get details.
