Time to Build Nest …

Nature, Photography, Wildlife

Three weeks ago, I took this bald eagle picture flew over my head toward the electrical transmission tower carrying a big tree branch for nest building.  It’s a rare sight other than snatching fish from the water. I remember I posted a similar picture last year, an amazing large tree branch – really showing the power of eagle’s grip.


I went back to Conowingo two days ago and didn’t see too much action of fish catching scenes but did capture another eagle carrying (small) tree branch for nest building.

      Thank you. It’s rare opportunity to capture bald eagles grabbing the tree branches instead of fish!

    This is an amazing photograph–an eagle is such a strong image by itself, but catching him in the act of building a home–fantastic!

    It just shows how strong bald eagle’s talons are! I’ve photographed them grabbing a big fish out of water but a big tree branch must weigh more than 4 pounds, usually their maximum fish grabbing power.

      I suppose eagle picks up branches of nest building in not unusual but to pick up such a big branch and fly overhead was a rare opportunity to capture. Thank for visiting my blog and please come back again.
