Not the best picture I know, but just wanted to show people who may not be able to see this, how HUGE the Eagle nests are. Especially considering how big of birds Eagles are.

Man, that is incredible, great perspective. That poor old tree is looking rough though, I hope it doesn't break under the load.

That is an amazing comparison Jason!
Maybe they should be called apartments or condos instead of simple nests - :). I'm just guessing that the nest has to be 8' or so across.

Great shot, Jason, it's amazing how big they make them, and keep adding more bits every year. I think the closest one to me has a front porch.
