Our Bald Eagles at the Dulles Greenway Wetland Mitigation are tending the nest and sitting on eggs!
We stopped by a few times over the past week and put a scope on the nest to see what was happening.
Each time, one of the adults has been in the nest, not moving much.
Today, the adult got up for a minute to stretch the ‘ole legs and reposition things a bit. Then it was back at it: into the nest….sitting, keeping the eggs warm and developing.
The mate was in the Sycamore tree next door, keeping watch and perhaps awaiting its shift on the nest.
In addition to the eagles, Spring Peepers were calling loudly and the snore of a Pickerel Frog could be heard off and on.
Photos of the eagles are on our facebook page.
