Are you crazy?!!!!

Are you crazy?!

I didn’t get to post yesterday because I had gotten up really early to get out to Berry College to photograph the Eagles again. One of the Eaglets had fledged the day before and I hoped that meant there would be some action near the nest. I arrived to see Ma Berry on her favorite branch, one eaglet in the nest and the other off in the woods out of sight. Ma flew off about a half hour after sunrise and returned with a fish to the nest. We did get to see the eaglet fledgling fly around above and beside the nest for awhile. It did not land in the nest, it’s sibling was blocking the easiest path! Ma sat on a branch and preened for a good hour or so. During that time she was often harassed by Mockingbirds and a Blue Jay. I did manage to get a couple shots of the Blue Jay harassing her. The size differential is amazing. The look on Ma’s face is classic. I guess she realizes more so than the Blue Jay, she could devour it with one swift bite!
