#262834 Bald Eagle With Nesting Material

For the fourth or fifth time since I've been photographing them, their nest has fallen from the host tree. In the past they've been damaged by high winds, but this time, the supporting tree limbs simply broke under the weight. So it's rebuild time.

Herman, you're exactly right, they are difficult to approach on the open water, we saw lots of them on the water as we boated out to the island, but they all took flight whenever we got within 50 yards of them. They leave the island where I photographed them in late August and come back in early July. You did better than I did Herman, I wasn't able to photograph any on the water and I tried. There were large flotillas of them, combined with razorbills, but we could never get close enough to photograph them on water. Herman, I have more shots of Puffins and Razorbills and Gannets as well as the Island where they nest here  at this link:  https://ronwooldridg...ugmug.com/Birds. By placing this link on your thread, I hope you don't mind me behaving like a cowbird and laying my eggs in your nest.
