Woodland WA, Eagles Nest!

I was hoping it was just a matter of time before I saw the bald eagle again that I had first seen grabbing straw from the field a few weeks ago and not only did I see him again but I spotted his nest with his mate on it!  Yay!

I am now watching 3 nests; the osprey nest just north of us with Norm and Norma on it and I believe Norma is sitting on eggs.  Then the osprey nest 1 mile south of us with Sal and Sally on it.  They do not have eggs yet.  And now the bald eagle nest in between them!  As you can see in the pics below, I believe the eagle nest also has eggs.

Right after I spotted the male eagle, another large bird flew overhead.....which may have been the golden eagle I thought I saw a week ago.  You be the judge!:)

saw the male first sitting on a branch over the river.......


looking around and keeping watch.......


look for the male all the way on the left and then look all the way to the right for the nest with the female

she certainly seems to be sitting on eggs!


could not get her to look my way, she is very high up and a long ways from me


so what do you think, golden eagle??  

I think these finches think it is!
