Watching the pair of eagles work on yet another nest this past Sunday got me thinking how much affort and skill it takes to build a nest without the use of hands. The male is nicknamed "sticks" because he's a master nest builder and is always moving sticks to the right spot in the nest or placing them in a tree...this year he's had a lot of practice and he's not giving up.

Another excellent shot Duane. I fail to understand what is being gained by tearing down the nests of these Eagles. I know they don't want them close to the airfield, but at least these two Eagles are still near it and flying constantly to build nests. The Eagles obviously aren't giving up so looks like they need to try to capture and relocate them or just give up on this project.

Duane, constantly tearing down their nests when they are genetically programmed to keep building replacements must be bordering on animal abuse. I wonder if the local ASPCA or similar body has anything to say about it. :(

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
