Eagles Mating

I went out to Berry College the other day to photograph the Bald Eagles and saw something I am willing to bet only a handful of people ever witness, Eagles mating. The female flew to the nest with a small branch and then flew to the male on a branch. She then lowers her head and makes calls. The male then mounts the female. He then flies off to a branch nearby, takes a small branch to the nest and then flies back to the female. I have spent many, many, many days and years watching birds in the wild and I must say, it was an incredible thing to witness.
