Just a few hours after the red tail hawks were hanging around in our Magnolia backyard, we noticed an eagle in the nest again. It was just one eagle and we did not spot the partner. It left the nest twice to get sticks for nest maintenance. It took a little poop break between trips; did the nest-work; and took off toward the harbor. It was a spectacular spring afternoon show! I have missed a couple of their recent visits so this was a great treat for me to be able to record it for myself.
I reflect on how fortunate I am to be living here, not only because it is the city of my ancestors; not only because of the blessings of the ocean and the light; but also to have my spirit bird hanging around right in my backyard where I can photograph them sometimes without leaving the house…….WOW.
