I was up visiting the eaglets nesting near where I work yesterday and was amazed with just how much they've grown in just a few weeks. They are both still in the nest and I suspect they'll probably be flying within a few weeks.

When I was leaving, I had the most amazing encounter with some young hummingbirds. I spotted two of them on a branch and they both took turns flying over to visit me as I was taking their pictures. It was so cool. I love those little guys!
